OverviewThis nice easy hike gives everyone something. The trail is easy to follow, there is scenery the entire way and the summit is interesting. On top is a benchmark and a triangulation structure as well. You may even find painted rocks from the Girls Camp below to the north. This summit is the biggest hike from that camp a trail comes up from that direction (private property of the camp marked in red on the map). I’ve stayed in the camp one weekend, it's got electricity, full outdoor kitchens and flush toilets/showers; I wouldn’t call it a camp, more like a retreat! Anyway, the views are very nice from the summit and other hiking/driving opportunities exist in the area.
Getting ThereTake Utah Hwy 35 east of the Francis-Kamas area to the well signed Mill Hollow turnoff (Forest Road #054) and follow this road past the reservoir and campground. At the pass, just past the Duchesne Ridge turn-off, the road will drop but continue south instead, back on top of the ridge. As it does this, look for a road cutting right before the main road drops down even further. This road to the right traverses the north side of a knob, then along a ridge to the base of Bald Knoll. When the road ends (blocked by the Forest Service), this is the start.
Red TapeNone, if there are restrictions, the Forest Service has done a good job posting them.
