Definitely not a "Hard Trail" we did it in reverse starting at Bakers Tank . Nice forest walk took about a little over two hours very enjoyable and a good 1st hike having just arrived acclimatising to the altitude Our GPS measured it as 5.8 mile round trip

Mainly in the forest, with lots of wildlife.

We took the advice from Tom Moore a few reviews ago. Agreed, hike really isn't a "hard" hike. We took the forest trail up through the woods all the way to Bakers Tank, then returned down Boreas Pass. The road isn't very exciting (and was a bit dusty when we went) but the views were spectacular! It took us much longer to get down because we were stopping to taking photos everywhere. If you get lucky and the aspens are changing, the road hike is quite stunning.

A little steep at first but a nice hike to the Baker Tank

Baker's is not "hard" as the rating implies. My wife and I are 53 and 54. We've done Gray's, Mohawk, McCullough Gulch, and Burro in the past 2 weeks and Baker's is the easiest of the bunch. Nice gradual incline. 900 feet of elevation gain. GPS recorded it as 6 miles round trip. Baker's is basically a pretty forest hike (similar to Burro). Couple of decent views. We went on Thursday and saw a total of 1 trail runner and 1 mountain biker. If we do it again, we'll hike up the trail and back on Boreas Pass Rd (which has far better vista views than the trail)

My sons and I have done this Trail several times on mountain bikes. Boreas Pass Road is a moderate but steady climb and the trail through the woods down is moderately technical but a lot of fun. Round trip takes about 3 hours. views of Breckenridge and the reservoir are incredible.

Shaded for most of the way with a very long incline for the first half. Nice little snack by the river that flows next to bakers tank. Good spot for lunch.

Great hike in October...I did not make it all the way to the tank because the altitude got to me at about 11,500 and I turned back. Will do again this summer.

Great trail. Snowshoed. Halfway through the trail gets a bit confusing as several tracked paths emerge. On the return down there is some fun powdery runs. Not too many overwhelming panoramic views, but beautiful forests.
