Baker Creek State Park



Mountain Bike Trail

Length: 10 miles of connecting loops

Type: Mountain Biking/ Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Moderate

Description: From the kiosk near the park office, begin this medium to strenuous, rolling, hiking/biking, two loop dirt trail. You will pass through various habitats of oak and pine woods where some very large trees can be seen, including a poplar that may be the largest in the state. In lush creek-side vegetation, you may see a variety of birds, snakes, and other wildlife. Although the trail is easy to follow, watch for markers and signs to keep you on track where the trail joins forest access roads, and the main park road. Although, not especially technical or strenuous for mountain bikes, the roads provide access around some of the more strenuous sections.

Go left for the outer or larger loop, which crosses the main road and passes the residence of the Assistant Superintendent, then returns to the main road. You can turn right, cross the bridge, and return to the pavilion, or turn left and ride or hike  the smaller loop.

Go right and follow Baker Creek for a sort distance. At the main road, turn right and cross the bridge. You can turn left and go back on the outer loop, or turn right and ride or hike  the inner loop.

Wild Mint Nature Trail

Length: 0.8 miles

Type: Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Easy

Description: Enjoy scenic views on this short, occasionally steep, foot-traffic only, nature trail. Trail signs (green posts with white letters) will guide you on a pine needle covered path, which descends toward the lake, and then winds through the woods overlooking the shore. All through this area you may encounter a variety of birds, snakes, and other wildlife. Just past the footbridge you will walk uphill and cross the park road into a dense pine forest. After you re-cross the road, you will return to the start on the short spur near the beginning of the trail 

Remember to wear insect repellent in warm weather. Pets are permitted only on leashes. Restrooms are available at the boat ramp parking area.
