Baker Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A scenic hike to a pair of alpine lakes."
--Bruce Grubbs, Hiking Great Basin National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Both Baker and Johnson lakes repose majestically in glacial cirques rimmed by rugged walls, beneath the crest of the southern Snake Range. However, these scenic alpine lakes are just two of the many attractions along this trip into the heart of Great Basin National Park backcountry. Baker Creek and South Fork Baker Creek are two delightful streams that tumble down forested canyons as diverse as any drainages in the Great Basin. The verdant, pastoral parkland near the head of the South Fork is particularly stunning. History buffs will appreciate the area around Johnson Lake, where a long-abandoned tungsten mine has left remnants of a tramway, a stamp mill, and numerous log cabins."
--Mike White, Backpacking Nevada (Wilderness Press).
