Does anyone have any suggestions for a loop hike in Mt. Baker National Forest, Washington? I'm looking to do 3-5 days of solitude near treeline and some fishing would be a plus. I've checked out some of the peaks in that area (Fury, Terror) on Google Earth and they look fairly technical. Any comments would be appreciated, especially regarding weather. I plan to arrive out there August 11th.

You have to hike for 3-4 days before you can see Fury or Terror in the Picket Range.  Forget the Picket range for non-technical hikes.  All routes go through Imperfect Impasse, a nasty gorge that you can't go above or below, and requires tricky crossing over loose rock.  

One possible one is to go to Cascade pass, which has an incredible view, and drop down the other side to the lakes over the other side.

I have never done it, but a hike to Mt. Shuksan would be worth looking into.  Its very scenic, being on every calendar of Washington scenes.

Not a loop, but Whatcom Pass would be a spectacular 5 day in-and-out hike.
