Trail Overview

Baker River Road is a combination of paved, dirt and gravel roads at varying points. This is an easy and not rutted out and back trail that drives around multiple locations of Baker Lake, including the swimming and boat launch areas. There are multiple dispersed camping locations directly on the side of the roadway next to the water, including one next to a small waterfall, however please be warned that you will need to have a Northwest Forest Pass visible as it is regularly enforced and ticketed. At times, there are multiple rangers checking specifically for this pass and ticketing anyone who did not have it displayed. I ran this area in the fall and am not positive on it's accessibility during the winter months.


I gave this a 1 rating because I feel like someone with zero experience would be fine on this combination terrain road. There were no large potholes or bumps and was paved with dirt and gravel sections.
