Baker Mountain, Bingham, Maine #10

Baker Mt. Lodge
After overnighting in the Greenville area and exploring Mt. Kineo, we headed home. On the way up, we passed Baker Mountain in Bingham and decided to climb it on the way home. I love the idea of this little mountain with reasonable steeps and a quick T-bar. I can see how this tiny lighted gem could, like Spruce, Black, and Scottie's from the 1950s, help youngsters earn their skiing legs. Remember to click on the photos to enlarge.

  1. I have so many memories and a few scars from growing up skiing at that mountain. It is a diamond in the rough. It is still going strong with its volunteer base who keeps the mountain going and improving each year. My dad and mom played a huge part in keeping it running during the time we lived in Bingham. That t-bar was steady and unforgiving at times. I remember it fondly. Glad you got to check it out. You should ski there some time. It also makes for a great tubing hill. Scary rides from the top only to be stopped by the lodge. Bailey would love a good winter hike!
