Baker Peak is located in the middle of the 6,720-acre Big Branch Wilderness. While Griffith Lake is not inside the designated wilderness area, it is still a pristine backcountry destination. It is located in a narrow corridor between the Big Branch Wilderness and the Peru Peak Wilderness, where snowmobiling is allowed during the winter. Both Baker Peak and Griffith Lake make excellent hiking destinations alone, but the hike described here takes you to both in a day. The route is also perfect for an overnight if you want to break up the mileage. You can camp at the Griffith Lake tent site, then either hike Baker Peak as a diversion or hike out over the peak.
