A great little hike. Amazing views. I backpacked in to Ruth Lake and spent the night there with my family. Bald Mountain made for the perfect hike on our way home. We saw a mother and baby mountain goat too.

Fathers Day hike with my kids. Other than the very high winds it was a perfect day. Loved the 360 degree views.

This was my first Utah peak. I did some splits on this peak and also had a nap. The elevation was tough for my then sea-level self. Clearly, I was hooked because a year later and I'm living here.

Climbed with RB, AKB (9), and Spud, the dog. Great fall day and just after moving back to the West after a little over a year at lower altitudes, so especially enjoyed hiking to a high peak again.

This peak is popular for Utah birders because it is a reliable place for Black Rosy Finches. An great hike for non-birders as well!

Climbed up fairly quickly. From the top it looked like a scene from LOTR! Lots of clouds made the view really cool. Hailed on us on the way down, though.

Hiked a few times when I was young (I event got the whole of my young family to the top). This was the first time though as an old man. I saw six mountain goats and was awed by how white their coats were.

This is one of, if not the best peak to climb if you have kids with you. Ours are age 5 to 11, they all made it and loved it. Big reward with little effort!

Bark EaterR&R After Kings  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2014

Bark Eater

Enjoyed this nice climb with Andy for recovery the day after Kings Peak. The trail was still drifted over and impassible about half way up. There was an easy detour herd path cutting right first traversing and then upslope that avoided nearly all of the snow. The snowfield kept 90% of the lower trail traffic from reaching the summit. Got some great close up photos of the mountain goats!

Ammon Hatch and I spent August 13th camping in the Uintas so we could observe the Perseid meteor shower, and we summited Bald Mountain the next day. This was a great weekend getaway.

elevateyourstateBest Bang for Your Buck in the Uintas  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2006

elevateyourstate

This is hands-down the first choice in the Uintas if you have one day or one summit in your schedule.

-- Great View (I like the view of the Wasatch to the distant west and the sloping canyons to the south down into the Roosevelt/Vernal basin.)

-- Short Distance (Getting to this high of elevation in such short mileage is rare.)

-- Fun Family/Beginning Hike (This is a humdinger of an introduction to hiking for newbies. I haven't found the elevation to be a problem for those who live in the Mountain West area.)

-- "Summer" Surprises Possible (Snowflakes anytime after mid-August are common, so that makes the kiddos go nuts and they'll never forget it.)


Very crowded and popular for a reason. Highly recommended.

10/16/2013 I parked my car just short of Bald Mountain Pass, at a pullout overlook. From there I headed up Murdock Mountain, and found the Wasatch County highpoint on the way down. Once down to my car, I restocked my water and headed up Bald Mountain. Pretty easy going until I got to the ridge/plateau area. Knee to thigh deep postholing most of the way up the last 500 feet of vertical. Quite a bit of snow up there already. Fantastic views and perfectly blue skies, albeit very windy and cold on top.

Drove to the trailhead and started hiking up the trail, but a strong wind kicked up and it began to rain in earnest so we decided not to continue the hike. We drove back towards Kamas and stopped at the Provo River Falls for a bit and the weather improved, so we drove back to the trailhead and had a great hike. It was the first time that my wife had climbed the mountain. Our little Shitzu enjoyed himself as well.

I have two friends visiting from Maryland, and I wanted them to stand majestically atop a mountain, but we're running a half-marathon this weekend. I didn't want to kill them with lots of mileage or a super steep climb, but I wanted to expose them to some elevation (and some gorgeous!). Perfect hike with which to introduce them to Utah. A+, Bald Mountain.
