The hike up to Baker Peak on sunday 9/29 was a great success with 13 hikers. We climbed up through beautiful woods, with the autumn colors surrounding us, reaching the summit of Baker Peak in time for lunch. Chris Burk, geologist and member of the Manchester Section, provided us with much fascinating information about the geology of the area. The group then split up with some returning the same way we had climbed up (Baker Peak Trail to Lake Trail) to return to their cars and others continuing on south on the Long Trail to Griffith Lake before returning via Lake Trail to thier cars.
