Located in the Sulphur Springs area of McDonald Forest, Baker Creek Trail can be accessed from Sulphur Springs Road. Baker Creek Trail is a multiple-use trail open year-round to hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Because parking is adequate to accommodate horse trailers, this is a popular route for equestrians to access the Forest. At two tenths of a mile in length with a 23 foot gain in elevation, Baker Creek Trail provides an opportunity for all to enjoy an easy hike through a beautiful area. Flora of note along the trail includes tall bugbane, an uncommon native wildflower. Tall bugbane flowers in the early summer and can reach heights of three to seven feet! Baker Creek Trail also passes alongside an old growth reserve. Old growth reserves located within McDonald Forest are low-elevation coniferous forests containing some large, 200+ year old Douglas-fir trees, as well as snags and fallen trees. Students and researchers study the ecology of these old growth reserves. Stop by and enjoy all the opportunities Baker Creek Trail has to offer!
