Done from the west as a loop hike with Haynes and Eagle. The only other person on the trail that day (Stosh from Oneonta) ran into a mother bear with cub. Fortunately all parties were placid about it. Noticeably more snow on the north slope of Eagle than Balsam.The summit for Balsam is now marked.

This was a nice loop hike. The view from the one overlook makes the summit a worthwhile hike. It was windy with summit temps around 44F.
Hiked Vly and Bearpen earlier in the day.

Climbed via the McKinley Hollow Trail from Oliverea. Surprisingly steep on the way up. Not much in the way of views.

Hiked Eagle/Balsam from Rider Hollow, cold breezy day, but sunny, not many Balsam trees on Blasam though, Nice Viewpoint on descent from Balsam, completed a loop past Bellayre on the return.

Climbing via Rider Hollow, and followed up with Eagle. Rained off and on all day and the overgrown brush around the trail completely soaked me but it was still a really fun hike.

Started at Pine Hill and backpacked the ridge for my second backpacking trip. Addicted to peak bagging now and will return until I get them all.

Stopped by Belleayre Mountain along the way. The viewpoint is not that bad on Balsam, but I liked the views much better from Belleayre. Why can't they mark the summit on Balsam? It's stupid.
