Overview

 
Views from Bald Mountain B Summit_BB
The beauty of the High Uintahs unfolds before the hiker's eyes.
28 Jul 2007


Bald Mountain B resides on the north slope of the High Uinta Mountains, the “Roof of Utah”. Not limited to lofty peaks, the High Uintas in northeastern Utah are home to more than 500 lakes, many unnamed. This area contains the lovely, 456,705-acre High Uintas Wilderness.

From the summit of Bald Mountain B, the hiker enjoys dramatic, panoramic views of the High Uintas, in all directions. Looking several hundred feet down to the east-northeast, one can gaze down upon Bald Lake.

Not to be confused with it’s higher Uinta neighbor of the same name Bald Mountain - 11,947 ft, Bald Mountain B is easily accessed from the high point of the Bald Mountain Trail from the East Forks Blacks Fork Trailhead. This Bald Mountain Trail is, in turn, not to be confused with the Bald Mountain Trail that whisks hikers to the summit of the higher of the Uinta Bald Mountains.

Getting There

Directions to the East Fork Blacks Fork Trailhead

From the traffic light in Kamas and the intersection of route 248 and 32, head north 0.1 to SR 150 (Mirror Lake Highway). Turn Right onto SR 150 and follow for 49 miles to FR 058, turn right onto FR 058 (Dirt Road) and follow for 21.2 miles to the intersection with another dirt road heading north south. Turn right and follow road south for approximately 6 miles to the parking area at the East Fork Blacks Fork camping area and trailhead.

As of July, 2014, the last six miles or so of road into the trail head were pretty rough. We made it in a mid-size sedan, but bottomed out once or twice and wound up getting a flat tire due to a pointy rock. Suggest a SUV with good tire tread is most appropriate to reach the trail head at this point in time. - SP Member Bark Eater

Walk softly and follow LNT (Leave No Trace) principals.

Be aware that the High Uintas are heavily used by sheep herders. Dogs need to be leashed in wilderness areas to begin with. However, should your dog be unrestrained and sheep are encountered, leash your dog at once. It is the responsibility of the herder to protect his sheep from threats, such as coyotes, pumas or domestic dogs, and he will do so, even employing means lethal to your best friend. Should the herdman have herding dogs with him to protect his flock, the outcome could quickly become even more gruesome.

Camping & Lodging

  • Rustic car camping is available at the East Fork Blacks Fork campground at the trailhead.

  • Comfortable, reasonably-priced hotels are available in nearby Evanston, Wyoming.
