The Baker Trail was established in 1950 and named for the late Pittsburgh attorney, Horace Forbes Baker. The Baker Trail is a 132-mile hiking and backpacking trail that passes through Armstrong, Indiana, Jefferson, Clarion and Forest counties. The trail follows forest paths, old jeep trails and dirt roads through woods, farmlands, along rivers and creeks. The northern section of the Baker Trail merges with the North Country Trail. It is one of the 18 state-designated hiking trails. Currently, there are nine campsites with open front "Adirondack" shelters located on side trails, along with primitive campsites where tents can be used.
