Baker Lake Trail is a 10.4 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Baker, Nevada that features a lake and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October.
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.
