Summary:
Trail starts with a series of creek crossing to a moderate uphill to the left. Stay to the left on the way up. Until the trail comes to a Y. At the Y take a left, about 200 hundred yards on your left there is a fairly steep drop in. After you drop in you will be on a single track that starts with ~1.5mi easy climp with mutiple uphill log crossings. Once you reach the top, it is a nice decent for 2~3 miles. With a lot more tree crossing, and a small techical rock garden. The trail will end up on the wide road that you climbed to get to the drop in. One of the best part of the day is the very fast downhill back to West Run.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
White Park
Coopers Rock

Summary:
Bakers is nice intermediate ground. The perfect place to go big ring it for an afternoon. I go to school at WVU and ride on the cycling team there and bakers is a nice place to hit up after class. Lots of singletrack that's relatively flat with a few technical sections here or there to keep things interesting, and the only climb is to get up to the trialhead. The place never dries out so be prepared to get a little dirty.

Summary:
The trail is not marked and I was riding alone and I hardly found 5 miles, let alone the possible 10 miles of this trail. Most of the time I was trying to be careful not to stray into private lands. Still, this place has a lot of potential. 3 chillis from me because it is not very friendly for someone from out of town (I'm from lower Michigan, check out the well maintained trails by MMBA if you happen to be in the area).
