Baker Peak and Griffith Lake

Baker Peak and Griffith Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Located in the Big Branch Wilderness Area, Baker Peak is arguably the most scenic summit on the Long Trail south of Route 4. From its rocky high point there are excellent views of the Taconic Range and the Otter Creek Valley far below. While a journey to Baker Peak by itself is a worthy destination, you can extend the hike an additional 2.5 miles and visit the sparkling blue waters of Griffith Lake. Hidden high upon the Green Mountain Ridge, this elongated water body is the perfect place to enjoy the midday sun."
