My husband and I had heard a lot about the Upper lodge trail to Artist Point; However, it was just earlier this January that my husband and I finally got a chance to visit this mesmerizing location.
The upper lodge trail to artist point is a 6.3 kilometers trail. It is a moderately trafficked and back trail located near Maple Falls, Washington. This trail is mainly used for hiking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. My husband and I snowshoed to the top as, of course, the snow was dense.
A snow base of more than 87 inches, clear skies, and 360-degree views at the top made our experience absolutely out of this world. Moreover, the trail also had a couple of steep sections that further added to our scintillating experience, snowshoeing to the Artist Point.
The serene surroundings thoroughly entertained us on our way up to the top. Although the trail itself was busy, it had lots of space up at the Artist Point to enjoy the stunning 360-degree mountain views.
The trail possesses an intermediate challenge for snowshoeing, and it is rated as moderate. Firstly we snowshoed to the top and then had our lunch amidst a chilly and mind-blowing environment.
The view at the Artist Point is itself artistic in nature, and I feel it is a must-visit for people in Washington. And mind you, it is absolutely worth it!
