Hiking Baker Lake - Horseshoe Cove Snowshoe

This seasonal snowshoe route to the shore of Baker Lake is dependent on the snow accumulation at the time of your trip. With the right amount of snow this becomes a 2-mile walk along a snowy road to the lake. 

Given the right conditions this route starts from the intersection of Baker Lake Road and Forest Road 1118. If the road is not snow-covered this does not make a good hiking option since car traffic may still be using the road.

Walk down Forest Road 1118 for 2 miles to Horseshoe Cove Campground and the shore of Baker Lake before turning around. Note: Horseshoe Cove Campground is closed during the winter, so don’t expect any facilities here.
