COVID 19 Update
As I am sure you are aware Covid 19 has shutdown many activities including running events in Washington State. Until we have clear direction to continue our events in 2020 registration has been "kind of" halted. If you want to run this event please sign up. You will be put on a waiting list. When and if we are given permit’s we will open up registration again. Those on the waiting list will be notified and asked to pay for the event. If we are given 3 weeks or less time notice either from Washington State or our permitting agencies shirts may not be available. We will have awards, beverages and food at all of our events. We will have strict social distancing rules at all of our events and will expect all participants and their families/friends to adhere to them.
The Baker Lake Trail Run occurs in a beautiful serene, fall setting. The 50K out and back course offers unique features, beautiful forested trail, and awesome scenery. The run starts in the Kulshan Campground, where campers can enjoy a free campsite the night before the run. Runners leave the campground on a paved road the first quarter mile, which crosses the scenic Upper Baker Dam. Once across, the road turns to gravel for just over a mile, until runners come to the trailhead of the Baker Lake Trail.
The 14 mile long, single track trail meanders along the lake with short trips into deep, old growth forest. The trail is rolling, with countless rises and descents, and turns along the hillside. Mossy, slippery footbridges are strategically placed to wake the runner from any lapse in concentration. Fresh, fallen, multicolored maple leaves cover the landscape. Tricky steps across log bridges, and views from bridges over cascading streams, can invite pictures and side trips along the lake.
