Bakers Mountain Park is where I go for a leisure stroll with family or to get back into hiking shape after winter. There are only two very steep climbs in my opinion, the climb to the observation platform at elevation 1625 feet via the blue trail (see map at bottom) and the short climb to elevation 1280 feet on the Knoll Spur trail. The park is well maintained and the trails are clearly marked with maps posted on every trail intersection. This is a hike I took on April 21, 2017. It was cool and cloudy that day. A short drizzle came through but otherwise the hike was enjoyable. I had a 10lb camera backpack with a Pentax K-50, 18-55mm lens, 50-200mm lens, a Sigma DG 70-300mm lens and a tripod. I used the Sigma and tripod on a series of shots that didnít turn out. The photos posted on this page were taken mostly with the 50-200mm lens. My brother came down from Indiana and we visited the park on May 2, 2017. A severe storm was forecasted at 3pm that day. We reached the peak at 3:15pm and the storm hit. We got wet.
