Man-made Baker Lake, with its stump flats, isn’t anything spectacular. But that’s not the real draw of this trail. The free-flowing Baker River, cascading tributaries, groves of old-growth giants, views of Mounts Baker and Shuksan, and a cool little suspension bridge—those are what will bring you here. And one more thing: this trail can be hiked in any season by just about anyone. Judging from the size of the parking lot, your hunch that this trail is a popular one is correct. Try it on a rainy weekday or during the winter months for more peaceful plodding.
