Directions to Trailhead

Suntop Trail is a very short, very easy hike in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest with panoramic views. It’s the perfect picnic spot, with lots of tables and a very well-maintained restroom. The hike is lightly trafficked at only 1.6 km with a mere 138 m to climb, so it’s a fun adventure for hikers of all ability levels.

The road in has some potholes, but it’s not as bad as other forest roads by any stretch.
