Baker Lake Trail (234) is relatively steep, but it is an easy and quick access to Baker Lake. Its primary use is by day hikers and hunters and it is not recommended for stock use. This trail is not well defined, but the lake can be reached with adequate map reading. Depending on the route one chooses, openings along the trail offer excellent views of Trapper peak and the Bitterroot Valley.
