Baker Lake


Day Hike - Baker Lake

Beautiful views of Mt Baker and Mt Shuksan are waiting. There is a suspension bridge to cross, and many old growth trees to walk through. The lake is warm enough for swimming. There are camp sites to check out for future backpack trips. This will be a slow paced hike. We will hike at the pace of the slowest hiker. We will stay together as a group. Nobody will be left behind or be hiking on their own. There will be a short side trip to search for Old Doug.
