Description

Baker Lake-South Fork Baker Creek Connector Trail is a a half mile trail that connects the Baker Lake Trail and the South Fork Baker Creek Trail. As you hike up the Baker Lake Trail, just after you pass the one mile mark, this trail breaks off to the left and drops down toward the creek and crosses a wooden bridge. From here, the trail climbs uphill for roughly two-tenths of a mile.

You'll get to see wildflowers blooming in the late spring or early summer. Once the trail crests the hillside, it drops steeply down the backside of the hill and then the trail starts to level out. It moves through the woods paralleling the South Fork Baker Creek Trail before arriving moving to the left where the trail terminates into the South Fork Baker Creek Trail.

There is a beautiful view of the meadow here. From here, you can turn to the right and hike up to the Timber Creek Trail or turn to the left and hike back to the parking lot. While a simple trail, this is a great connector when combined with other trails in the area.

Flora & Fauna

A variety of wildflowers can be seen along the trail in the spring.

Deer and turkeys can be seen in this area, especially in the evenings.
