CacheMACSBald Mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2012


This was a great hike. Where else can you hike to that elevation and bring the whole family along. We did an afternoon hike and that turned out to be the best time on this trip. We pretty much had the top to ourselves. On the way back down we trailed along with a small group of Mountain Goats, they didn't seem to worry to much about our presence. This hike offers never ending views of so many places I would like to visit in the future. Reids Peak Kept on calling me, I am going to have to do a little research for that one. Maybe there is a trail somewhere. This is a bonus for anyone doing the Mirror Lake Route. Stop and stretch your legs, the worst part of the trip is just trying to get use to the elevation. Great Hike!!!

Climbed this a couple of times---once with my family and once running with the rest of the BYU XC team during XC camp. Short and easy!

I used to car camp in the basin south of the peak and hiked up from there at least twice. No trail needed for boulder hopping - the objective is plain.

liliacarrillo0822Windy, Snow but still beautiful  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


I was surprise of the snow still there, the peak was easy but the traverse to the saddle between Bald and Reid was hard cause I felt sick I still can hear the wind, still enjoyed the way down following my partner who love to make activities more challenging so we didn't follow a trail.

mtybumpo1st Uinta Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2011


Having just moved to Utah I decided to go check out the Uintas today. Bald mountain was an easy but fun peak. I wanted to do Reids as well but the clouds were building up and it looked like I didn't have that much time. I did, however,bag Murdock Peak as well.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


This was a great little hike. Neither my wife or I had heard of it before our drive through the Uintas, and when we saw it, we just had to stop and bag it.

Went up to watch the sunrise and kick off a day of fishing in the Uintas. No one else on the mountain at the same time. Fun little hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2007
Made a quick trip to the summit while my wife and sister visited nearby falls on the Provo River. Shortest trail to a summit in the Uintas that I know of. The view is beautiful, trail well maintained.

vanman798July 15 and still plenty of snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


July 15, 2011: The summer route was still covered in snow and since we got an early start (7:30 am), the snow was still hard. So we just went straight up the SE shoulder, traversed across the top and dropped down to the saddle between Bald and Reid. The west side below Bald was covered in melting snow so it took awhile to trod back that way, but made it more challenging! Another great thing about the snow still hanging around is we had the place to ourselves, didn't see one other people, which was perfect!

Hiked with cousins on a moonless night. Bats and an amazing view of the clear night sky made for a great night.

Been up twice...once with the Fam and again with the BYU Cross Country team. Nice maintained trail...not a mindblowing alpine experience though. Still nice and cool views but way too many people.

tmtn93First   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2010


On our very second camping trip of our life, I managed to conquer this beast. Unlike the last attempt (July 24th, 2009) where a huge snowbank blocked the trail and made it impossible to advance, this time we walked by the same area and didn't even notice where the snowbank should have been until I pointed it out. Round trip was about 2 hours (1 hour 5 min up and 45 minutes down because we had to wait for group 2, who started the hike 15 minutes after us on the descent). I really enjoyed the hike up and the sheer cliffs were amazing. This mountain has amazing views everywhere!! Oh and did I mention we started our hike at 6:56 P.M and on the way down saw the amazing sunset?? Yes, and all this made my very first alpine summit a very good experience!!

My 15th time up here. Climbed Bald then Reids, then back over Bald and down. With Moogie737. The Mirror Lake Highway is deserted this time of year.

Moogie737South slope snow climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2010


W/ ZeeJay. Snowshoes, then boots. No need for crampons today. Very unpredictable soft snow. Terrific views. Added, for good measure, Reids Peak, and climbed back over Bald Mtn again to get to the parked cars. Snow all the way down to the Mirror Lake Highway!

Date Climbed: Sep 23, 2009


My wife and I were up and down in no time flat and still had plenty of time on top to enjoy the phenomenal view. didn't see too many other people, mainly because it was mid week and cold but definitely worth every second.
