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.

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!

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.

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2009

My friend and I decided to tackle this monster this morning, ha ha. It took just about 30 minutes to reach the summit. One of the most pleasant and beautiful hikes I have yet done. It offers great views of other Uinta peaks that wet my appetite to spend some considerable time in the Uinta's. At the top, I decided to change our previous plans, of also bagging Murdock Mountain, and felt the beckoning call of Reed's Peak. I left Bald Mountain at 10:15 am and reached the summit at 11:05 am. May just be my new favorite mountain. Found the mailbox stashed away under the summit cairn, and wrote my name, date, and city on one of the last pages of the spiral notebook I found inside. The last page in that book had been signed in 1999. It looked as if it had endured much weather since being deposited there 10 years ago. It was a beautiful day, and I didn't see a single other person attempting Reed's on a rather busy Bald Mtn Labor Day weekend.

Beautiful hike! We arrived at the trailhead at 8:55am, made it to the summit in under an hour. Didn't see a soul the whole time, with the exception of a curious mountain goat that hung around the summit the whole time we were there. Great views in all directions! Such a great, fun hike!

The parking area was packed and so was the trail. A popular trail but yet that didn't alter the superb views. A bicycle event was going on down on the highway so I didn't go over and get Murdock like I thought I would and I also had planned to re-visit the county highpoint and check the register. That'll wait for another day (mid week a better choice).

I've hiked Bald a couple of times. I think I was complaining about it being a hard hike the first time I did it in '05. Went back in June of '08 and I couldn't believe that I was complaining the first time; it was a fun, very easy hike.

Nice, short hike with great views of nearby mountains and lakes in the Uintas. It was our 10-month old boy's first real mountain summit. See "Start 'Em Out Young" trip report for details.

Climbed up the standard trail and then down the other side to the saddle between Bald and Reid's Peak with Marauders. The sunrise from the summit was incredible.

Easy trail hike. We were able to watch the sunrise from the summit, then continue on to Reids Peak.
