Baker Peak Trail

MITTELSCHWER 47 Bewertungen

Baker Peak Trail ist ein 8.7 Meilen langer, wenig besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Danby, Vermont. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und spaziert werden. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

nice steady climb through the woods. worth the climb up the rocks to the lookout at the peak. several different waterfalls if you do the trail to the lake as well. Narrow in spots and muddy due to recent rain. several stream crossings along the way. great hike and will go again!

Enjoyed this hike, as it was very quiet and not demanding if you’re used to steeper hikes. Nice and easy, took the loop to the lake which was very pretty with all the fall foliage surrounding it. Not a very tough hike, good if you are a bit tired but still want to go for a hike. Only one significant viewpoint which was very nice for a lunchbreak but what we enjoyed most was all the fall foliage along the waterfall. Do not recommend if looking for a bit of a tougber climb, no bouldering opportunities so to speak.

It was a good hike! I didn’t see the Mountain View’s from the picture though - but maybe I didn’t go far enough out before doubling back to the loop. Also the gravel was pretty loose and I slipped a couple times heading down so I would watch that. Overall definitely worth going but I don’t think I would do it again!

Added little jaunt around on the Long Trail and Lake Trail to make this a loop, and it was very nice indeed.

Great trail, small parking area = low use trail. Brooks along the way are beautiful, some agility needed to cross the streams! Rewarding views with steady, moderate climb. A nice hike.

Nice hike with a lot of interesting things to see in the woods. Very wooded until the very top. It was a little hard to tell when you reached the very top, I think we made it. A few stream crossings to navigate.

HIked this trail two labor days ago and it was humid as hell. I've seen a few reviews about the "boring" beginning of this trail....within the first 5 mins of the hike I saw a gorgeous Barred Owl in the ravine to the left of the trail. Luckily I had my binoculars with me and watched it for a good 5 mins, it wasn't bothered at all by my presence. As for the trail itself I loved it..moderate hike but challenging in the humidity, thinking ahead I packed cold beers for the summit and that was my motivation to fight through the stifling heat

It's like a walk through the forest...Although steadily uphill, it is not very steep. The surrounding area remains monotonous. No outlook, no variety on the trail. The overlook is not worth the effort. Besides one million flies. At the beginnig of the trail there is not even a map.

Best parts of the hike were the stream and waterfall on the way up, the bridge sort of on a cliff, and the white rock scrambling at the top (New for me). It wasn't the best summit view and the flies were very bad towards the top. Tips: heavy bug spray, lunch at Cilantro Taco in Manchester post-hike :)

I give it a four because i dont have much to compare it too yet. Overall i thought it was a pretty good trail. There werent a whole lot of markees, but they were placed where they were needed haha. It's pretty easy to stay on the trail otherwise. Like some others said the first 15 minutes or so is bland like your normal trek through the woods, but then it changes after the bridge haha. well worth it if youre nearby. I drove 90 minutes to get there and dont regret it a bit.

First ten minutes is kind of a boring access path behind people's properties. Then the trail gets narrow, crosses a sweet bridge and begins to make some good gains up hill. Beautiful water feature with a flowing brook that comes and goes throughout the hike. Awesome leaf peeping hike. Afternoon or morning adventure. View facing West. Could be a great running trail. Light tread. We did it hungover, so, I'd say it's on the easier side!

Great hike. Keep dogs on leash until you cross the old bridge, its a sheer granite face. At Mcginnis Creek you can continue to Bakers Peak ( North ) or head right ( East ) up to the Lake Trail. The last third of a mile is a tad strenuous. Once at the top the views are great, then you can head south along the ridge and hook up to the Lake Trail. The trail bisected my in-laws property and I have done this hike often. There are many Black Bear in this area. I usually hook a small cow bell on my pack, as well as , and especially on my dogs. There are also a good number of hunters in this area, make sure to wear blaze if hiking during hunting season.

A very well maintained trail, with good signage and great views, plenty of water and at this time of year, empty. We parked by the gate which was open. We came up from Peru Vt, which was a great treat to come back down to and have snacks at JJ Hapgoods.

Great weather 70 a the trail head, got a little chilly at the top. Really nice trail, views appear very quickly on the way up, I was going to head over to Griffith Lake but thought I'd save it for next time. Parking was easy room for 5 cars. Found a stolen backpack in the woods at the trail head and called the guy who 'lost it'. It turned out to be my good deed for the day, along with a very enjoyable hike. Will do it again in the winter.

Just did this hike for the second time! Excellent views from the peak. I ate lunch up there yesterday and it was beautiful. I definitely recommend going up there in the Fall to see the foliage.
