Description

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!
