not much hiking. You can almost drive up to the cabins. We hiked farther up and it was pretty. Some scrambling was necessary to go farther back.

Holy cow. You gotta WORK for this one! Made it to the arch, but wasn't able to go any further due to a thunderstorm that closed in on us fast as we traversed up the crack below the arch. Just enough time to get up, take a few pics, and get back down. Started pouring just after we climbed back out of the final chute on the return. Will definitely be coming back to summit.... Two things: 1- I've got a stock Ford F150 with BFG KO2 and made it 2 miles into Rocky Gap Road without a problem. Making it to the TH with factory clearance could be an issue, but it's possible to take off at LEAST 4-5 miles round trip in a stock vehicle, driving carefully. 2- the more "technical" portions of the hike (last half mile) feel really sketchy - worse than they really are. If you're uncomfortable outside of the crack on the excited face, you can crab your way up/down the crack slowly and safely. Total stats today: 12.1M, 3,562 elevation gain (parked truck 2mi. approx up Rocky Gap, to the arch - not summit), and 6h27m r/t. Good luck!

Beautiful views with lots of flowers.

I took my 7 year old son here for his first backpacking trip! We went in mid June and there were lots of creeks , so we stopped frequently to dip our heads in to cool off. Tons of flowers and green aspen at this time of year. There were some snow drifts near the top and trees that had blown down across the trail, but we didn't have any problems with that. I tracked the trail with my GPS and it said we went 7.3 miles one way! I have backpacked a lot, and I thought that this was a much longer trail than 5.2 miles one way. So just a heads up on expecting a few miles longer. With my son it took 5 and a half hours to get there and 4 hrs to get back. He was a trooper and we made it. Once we got to the lake we set up camp to the left. We weren't able to go to the far side of the lake as there were others already camped there. Our spot was beautiful. But the ground is rocky, so be prepared with a nice sleeping pad!! Finding a good flat spot where we were was a little challenging. The temperature got down to mid 30's but we weren't cold as we dressed accordingly. The stars are amazing!!! The cliffs are very unstable that surround the lake, don't attempt to climb them!! So about every half hour big boulders were falling and rolling down the cliffs. One boulder was so loud that it woke us up in the middle of the night, which frightened my son. We were sleeping well away from the cliffs, but just a heads up! All in all it was worth the trip and I was very proud of my son for making the trek!! I highly recommend this lake!

This trail is well worth the work. Make sure to bring plenty of water though!

Quick trip up the stairs to see some great petroglyphs. Good for adults and children.

Beautiful hike to Stella Lake and Teresa Lake. we did it in the late afternoon and didn't see one person the whole hike. I recommend following the creek above Teresa Lake to check out the natural spring!

The cave tour is a must. One of the coolest caves I've been through!

Great little getaway from Vegas in Vegas! Lots of wildlife and some occasional shade and water to look at but mostly a super sunny walk. Pretty scenery and views 75% of the time, other 25% is burnt.

Book tickets in advance at recreation.gov or else you'll likely not get tickets in the summer time.

The 90 minute tour good. The whole park was beautiful. It wasn't all open due to snow. But what was open was a mix of river, granite, christmas trees and lite green trees. Gorgeous place. Bring your own food. There are VERY few places to eat in Baker, Nv

Challenging hike in October due to high wind and early snow. We hadn't planned on going to the top and weren't dressed properly (no gloves) so we had to take shelter near the top behind a rock wall and decided to turn back after watching the people ahead of us continually slip and fall in the icy snow. Next time!

Have lots of water the last mile is the hardest beautiful view. Wear comfy shoes lots of loose gravil so be very careful

Fantastic trail with a big payoff at the end... sitting with the bristlecones was a memorable experience for my son (eight) and I. Elevation makes the trail more moderate than it otherwise would be, but we still beat the minimum recommended trail time of two hours round trip even with a reasonable amount of time spent amongst the trees.

don't go in summer, i went in the middle of july at night and i damn near passed out from the heat. its a very fun hike with a lot of climbing involved do be prepared for it, bring way more water than you usually would need and be ready for wet shoes.

Steep beautiful and rewarding

Lovely Sunday afternoon ramble.

Great trail for mountain biking and getting lost in the desert. Take plenty of water and snacks. Trust me you could easily get lost. But thankfully I did, saw some beautiful scenery with a great view of the strip.

Great way to walk through the forest with several sightings of at massive Wheeler Peak. High pay off rewards of this trail were the two beautiful Sub-Alpine lakes. Stella Lake is beautiful with Wheeler Peak looming atop. There's a fair amount of distance between the two lakes which makes the trail interesting. We enjoyed seeing a few families with children getting out on this trail to enjoy this beautiful National Park.

Spectacular day. Trail is fairly moderate with good amounts of loose stone fill in some areas. Trees are majestic in their own way. Seeing living things this old is humbling.

Sand Harbor is just picture perfect as it is, so anything step you take there is just amazing

Great hike, deceivingly difficult. The elevation, wind, and, rocky terrain made the last 2 miles a struggle. The view was worth it though.

Great trip! We started out on the Baker Lake Creek Trail. This is a well-maintained trail with gradual inclines. Shady. Lots of water. We were really impressed with it. We camped at Baker Lake and then made our way up to the saddle the next morning. There were cairns to guide our way up. There was snow on the right-hand side, but it was dry on the other. This wasn't too hard, and was easier than we thought it would be. At the top of the saddle we dropped our packs and hiked up to Pyramid Peak. Again, this was not as difficult as we though it would be. Only the strong winds and elevation made it strenuous. Came back down and made our way down the saddle's other side. This was a little sketchy, as there was snow. We made our way around the snow and picked our way down. There was lots of loose dirt and rocks the first 1/4 of the way down. Slid a few times. The trail became clear after that and was much less steep. Not sure if there's a better way than the way we went. Made our way down to Johnson Lake and then down the rest of Baker Lake Creek Trail that hooks up with South Fork Baker Creek and Timber Creek. We took the way that connects to Timber Creek Trail and met up with the trailhead at the end.

I'm surprised this trail is open year round. We went on 6/6/18 in 101 degree weather. It was brutal. The trail is not clearly marked at all. We followed what we thought was the trail which lead us to an 150-200 foot dead drop. We wandered around until we found what looked like another trail. Luckily smart hikers stacked rocks which eventually guided us down to the river. The river was beautiful and a welcome reprieve. There is a lot of scrambling climbs, and loose rock, so you need to be experienced. It was so hot, that the tread on my hiking shoes literally was burned off! Coming out, we got on what we thought was the Lone Palm trail, and it took us way out of the way, and away from the direction we needed to go in. We tried to use GPS, but service was in and out. Google couldn't pin our exact location, and the apps for hiking were of no use. We spent an hour by the river, after it taking 2 to get down. It took us wandering for 4 hours to get back to our car. We were almost at a point of calling search and rescue, as we ran out of the gallon per person and 32oz Gatorade each. I don't recommend doing this alone, inexperienced, or in the summer months. Unless you have a trail guide that will actually have you on the correct trail.

This is a very hot and unshaded hike, though not overly strenuous in other aspects. Pay careful attention to the few trail markers as to not wind up off course. The section with petroglyphs is rather short, but fascinating. The ranger at the trail head was very helpful.

awesome hike, sadly didn't make it to the bottom; you absolutely need to bring a rope or have enough people in your group to pull or lift each other up. that part can not be emphasised enough. lots of going around and over boulders.

I really liked this trail. No shade, so def wear a hat and take lots of water.

Great hike, the path itself is paved and only 1.6 miles. Very easy. Just make sure you take lots of water it's hot out there.

Gorgeous views!!!
