Bakers Mountain Park is located in southwest Catawba County. It's an awesome 189 acre mature chestnut oak forest with about 6 miles of hiking trails. This was our first visit but definitely not our last. We didn't make it to the top which is the highest elevation in Catawba County at 1780 feet, but we had a wonderful time. The kids loved it until of course it was "hold-me" time for the twins.
