The Bakewell Lake trail is 0.9 miles long and is a relatively easy hike. It begins at the mouth of Bakewell Creek and leads to the northern end of Bakewell Lake. The first 0.5 mile of the trail follows the route of an abandoned road that was used in the 1950's during construction of the fish ladder, located half way up the trail. The trail begins as a natural tread through the forest with boardwalk sections through muskeg. The last .25 mile is rustic boardwalk that was reconstructed in 1995. There is no mooring buoy in Bakewell Arm and the anchorage at the trailhead is marginal.
