While this hike is rated as difficult, I would say it's actually moderate. It's a great hike for a new backpacker because the effort/reward ratio is really high. The cirque at Baker Lake is beautiful and, other than the fact that it's too high in elevation for a campfire, it might be one of the best campsites in the country.
