Bakers Tank #40


This trail winds through a dense forest as you climb up to Baker’s Tank. This is a popular trail for hikers and mountain bikers, so please be considerate of all trail users and yield right-of-way as needed. Before you reach the actual Baker’s Tank you will enjoy a nice viewpoint of the Tenmile Range including Quandary Peak and the Breckenridge Ski Area. Baker’s Tank is where the steam locomotives, designed especially for the tight curves and extreme grades found in mountain environments, took on water.
