"A long but very scenic day hike or backpack trip, with a short section of cross-country, to a pair of alpine lakes set in glacial basins located high in Great Basin National Park’s Snake Range. Start on the signed Baker Lake Trail. The trail climbs along the north side of boisterous Baker Creek, sometimes swinging to the north in a series of switchbacks. There are varied views of the canyon walls and the high country, especially when the trail temporarily leaves the creek and its dense riparian vegetation."
