Bacon Peak occupies a western salient of North Cascades National Park, located southeast of Baker Lake and due south of Mt. Shuksan. Its massive summit holds 1 1/4 square miles of glaciers. It has a curious rock divider splitting the summit plateau and a huge wind-formed cirque in the summit firn. There's lots to explore once the summit is reached!
