Baker Lake to Hat Creek Rim Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Hat Creek Rim is a 1000-foot ridge that invites all sorts of outdoor enthusiasts to play—from dog walkers and hikers, to mountain bikers and even hang-gliding enthusiasts. It’s not unusual to see multicolored gliders floating on the thermals created when wind sweeps up the valley all summer. Indeed, the rim hosts a large hang-gliding event every Labor Day. While this hike is a blast in the spring, summer, and fall, winter is the time the girls love this jaunt the most. And so will you. If you’ve never tried snowshoeing, this is just the trip to learn. You’ll travel through a volcanic world that is softened by snow, and the terrain is flat and the path is wide. Unlike cross-country or downhill skiing, where there is a learning curve to good performance, the basics of snowshoeing have never changed. If you can walk, you can snowshoe."
