New trail christened at Baker Lake, ID

The Baker Lake Trailhead northeast of Ketchum, ID gives recreationists access to serene views of crystal-blue alpine lakes and stunning vistas of the Boulder Mountains. Now, hikers have more options off of this versatile trailhead.

The Idaho Trails Association worked to complete an extension of the Osberg Ridge trail system. Hikers can now begin at the Baker Lake Trailhead and trek into Ketchum via the newly completed Osberg/Warm Springs Ridgeline Trail. Association volunteers constructed a brand-new trail under the guidance of a U.S. Forest Service Recreational Forester.

The trail is named after Gloria Moore Osberg, a longtime trails advocate known for her hiking book called “Day Hiking Near Sun Valley.” The trail runs 10 miles along the ridge between Fox Peak and the Baker Lake trailhead, connecting the Warm Springs drainage and the south side of the Baker Creek drainage.
