Features: Lake — Views — Wildlife
You are probably only in the shade about 50% of the time. Bring sunscreen.
Technical terrain. Wear shoes with rock plate.
The initial climb from 8,000 feet to Baker Lake on Baker Lake Trail
will bring you to an elevation of 10,000 ft. The run is all on singletrack, but it is very rocky, technical terrain. I ran a mile of the Timber Creek
Trail which is very steep. (I was afraid I was going to run out of time so I ran back down to take the Pole Canyon
Trail). From there I did out and back on Pole Canyon
Trail. This trail has very distinct areas of plant growth which is great to see. The Pole Canyon
Trail is not difficult but you do have to climb back out!
