CHS 2 Hike

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Baker Lake

This is a Key Exchange Thru Hike! We'll have more miles on this hike but not that much in elevation gain. Logistics will be a bit more challenging but a thru-hike can be a lot more interesting!!- CHS hike led at a CHS 2 pace (2.0-3.0 mph)

  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 13.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,800 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-3.0 mph

We will all meet at Ash Way Park and Ride at  7:00am.  Prior to our hike day we will organize our group to have one group start on the South end of Baker Lake and the other at the North end.    This hike will require that a car or two will have to be driven by other people in order to complete the "key exchange". Depending on how many hikers sign up we will be reaching out to drivers willing to do this.  More details will follow in our  "hello hiker" email.

This is a Key Exchange Thru hike that will encompass the entire length of Baker Lake on it's Eastern Shore.  It will require car exchange coordination so please be prepared for a slightly longer day than usual.
