Baker Preserve is a 3.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Lummi Island, WA that features a great forest setting. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
A trail rises 1,050 feet over 1.6 miles to a high cliff on the western face of Lummi Mountain. At the end of the Baker trail, there is an overlook on WDFW land that provides spectacular views of Rosario Strait and the San Juan Islands. Baker Preserve Trail winds up through beautiful woodlands filled with ferns. This trail is maintained by the Lummi Island Heritage Trust. The Baker Preserve is the Heritage Trust's first controlled-access preserve. Due to the ecological sensitivity and sometimes, hazardous terrain, hikers are required to sign in at the trailhead before accessing the Baker Preserve trail. Dogs are prohibited. Camping either on the Baker Preserve or WDFW land is prohibited. Fire of any kind is an extreme hazard on the island and is strictly prohibited.
Not much to the hike other than the look out. Starts out extremely steep and gradually evens out. Watch out for stinging nettles!
Beautiful hike up to a gorgeous view of the islands. About 12 miles round trip if you hike from the ferry dock like we did and continue on a bit past the lookout onto Washington fish and wildlife trails.
