kteichertBald and Reed's  Sucess!
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).

KadeeA Couple Times  Sucess!


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.

This is a fun, short hike that is suitable for everyone. The views are outstanding. Consider this a necessary hike when in the Uintahs.

Sunday morning hike... Didn't see many people and had summit to ourselves. One of the best "bang for your buck" hikes in Utah. Got to the bottom in time for the thunderstorms rolling in from the moisture from hurricane Dean.

This mountain was really easy but also rocky! The view of all the lakes from the top are great.

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2007


It would be very tough to find an easier summit at this elevation. Did this on a Wednesday morning and it got very crowded. 3 miles roundtrip with great views of the surrounding ranges as well as numerous lakes. Well worth the time if you're looking for a quick one or just passing through, as I was.

Did this with my wife after classes got out on a Friday afternoon... Despite Labor Day weekend beckoning, we saw only a few other folks on the mountain. Bald Mt was my first climb in the Uintas.

Fun short hike. Lots of rain around us, but somehow it never actually rained on us.
