Started after sunset. Going up the SW ridge, with all the city lights I didn't need a headlamp. Amazing light display from the top. Realized on way down it was Friday 13th and some scarry people might be in the parking lot. There was...not sure what they were doing. Three people walking in a blanket! http://www.willhiteweb.com/provo_hiking/big_baldy/timpanogos_008.htm

What a beautiful fall day. This was my first hike since jacking up my knee running a marathon a month earlier. I was a little slower than normal, but we did make decent time going up. It was cold on top and we had some excellent views of Timp and the Fall colors. My knee was a bit tight on the way down, but not much pain. Perfect way to start the day. I think I will add this into my regular training routine.

I hiked this with a friend via Dry Canyon trail. It was picturesque to enter the canyon with the sheer cliffs on either side about 15 minutes into the hike. The hike was a gentle incline, which made for a nice hike. From the trail, Big Baldy didn't look that far away, nor not that steep. We contemplated just bushwhacking up the SW slope, but decided to just stick with the trail. We made good time, and only saw two people on the way up. Due to there still being patches of snow on the east side, we lost the trail and did some creative trail blazing the eventually led us back to the trail about a quarter of a mile from the summit. Had the peak to ourselves the whole time. Great views of Timp, including some neat waterfalls on the lower Timp face caused by the spring snow melt. I've been told that the Battle Creek route is a little more scenic, probably due to Battle Creek Falls and the subsequent water. However it was a great opportunity to hike Big Baldy up Dry Canyon. I'd never seen it so green! We hiked back down via Dry Canyon which was a nice four hour hike.

Wandered up there and back for a little outing to get better views of Timp. 2:25 up and 1:30 down. I recommend trekking poles for on the way down to save the knees. Kudos to Josh Blackwelder for summitting!!!

Baldy is a great workout offering stunning views of Mt. Timpanogos and Utah Valley. Round trip took a little over 3 hours.

Needed a good conditioner and this fit the bill perfectly. Its 10 miles RT from the Battle Creek TH and I found the trail nice and enjoyable. Met a group of 5 who were doing a loop, a couple were boy scouts getting their 10 mile hike in.

Have also done it via the SW ridge.

Great hike up Battle Creek Canyon, passing lots of waterfalls and cool rock formations. We took a wrong turn and got off the trail for a while going up, but after bushwhacking for a bit we found that we had taken a pretty significant shortcut through the forest. Making our way through clouds and fog, we eventually found ourselves at the top of Big Baldy. The clouds parted just after we reached the summit, and we enjoyed some fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and Utah Valley. Great spot for route-finding on Timpanogos! A moderate half-day adventure.

Hiked up from Dry Creek. The bottom stretch of Dry Creek is pretty dry and boring, but once you start getting higher towards the Baldy/Timp saddle it's nicer.

Took probably two hours up, one hour down.

Met a nice guy on the top who had hiked from Grove Creek, IIRC.

Fun hike.

Aug 5, 2008 I felt like getting out for some exercise so I did a quick trail run up Big Baldy. I reached the south peak in one hour and twenty minutes, and over to the east ridge (north peak) in another 10 minutes. I made a traverse out of it by ascending the south ridge, and descending the east ridge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Memorial Day 2008 (May 26, 2008)

Walked/Scrambled up the South ridge during rain showers. A lot of parts I moved up two steeps and slide back one, but round trip took less than 3 hours (2 up, 1 down). The last 100 vertical feet was covered in fresh snow, and I got caught in a grauple storm on the descent. From the peak, one can see into Provo Canyon to the south, and happy valley (suburbs) to the west. I was on the south summit (the one with the flag pole).

Great hike with stellar views of Timpanogos from the summit. I like the Battle Creek trail better than Dry Canyon, but they make a great loop if hiked together (ascent, descent).

With Dave & Lana climbed a picturesque cornice line from the saddle on the north side after checking out the Everest Ridge up to 9,000'. Snow conditions were ideal.

I climbed Big Baldy from Dry Canyon. The route is much steeper than it looks. There was a lot snow on the summit and the north side of the mountain overlooking Battle Creek but not much on the south side. Good view of the west face of Timp and the rest of the Southern Wasatch. The mountain provides a good workout to stay in shape.

hiked in winter - went up from hells gate (?) and planned on going up the gully to the south of it, but it was full of avalanche debris, so I went up the southwest ridge to the top. THIS is me at the top, and THIS is the view of Timp from the top. Fun hike if you are about 90 minutes from sunset and are hankerin to get out (and you live nearby!).
