Bald Mountain  Sucess!

Took the NW Ridge after climbing Reids Peak, then descended via the standard trail. The NW Ridge is a steep boulder-hop but taking that and the trail down makes a nice loop. The trail misses the best part of a Uintas hike -- passing small lakes and ponds along the way.

NW Ridge  Sucess!

Nice but short scramble on halfway decent rock. Saw some mountain goats on the way up, which was a first for me!

Easy for kids  Sucess!

I've climbed this several times, the last time with my kids. Pretty easy hike for kids, and the views are amazing. Good activity if your camping and need about 3 hours to kill.

Bald  Sucess!

A great little hike. Amazing views. I backpacked in to Ruth Lake and spent the night there with my family. Bald Mountain made for the perfect hike on our way home. We saw a mother and baby mountain goat too.

Stellar views!

Fathers Day hike with my kids. Other than the very high winds it was a perfect day. Loved the 360 degree views.

First Utah Peak  Sucess!

This was my first Utah peak. I did some splits on this peak and also had a nap. The elevation was tough for my then sea-level self. Clearly, I was hooked because a year later and I'm living here.

Great for kids & dogs  Sucess!

Climbed with RB, AKB (9), and Spud, the dog. Great fall day and just after moving back to the West after a little over a year at lower altitudes, so especially enjoyed hiking to a high peak again.

Rosy Finches  Sucess!

This peak is popular for Utah birders because it is a reliable place for Black Rosy Finches. An great hike for non-birders as well!

First 11'er  Sucess!

Climbed up fairly quickly. From the top it looked like a scene from LOTR! Lots of clouds made the view really cool. Hailed on us on the way down, though.

Bald Mountain - A Uinta Favorite  Sucess!

Hiked a few times when I was young (I event got the whole of my young family to the top). This was the first time though as an old man. I saw six mountain goats and was awed by how white their coats were.

Nice family summit!  Sucess!

This is one of, if not the best peak to climb if you have kids with you. Ours are age 5 to 11, they all made it and loved it. Big reward with little effort!

R&R After Kings  Sucess!

Enjoyed this nice climb with Andy for recovery the day after Kings Peak. The trail was still drifted over and impassible about half way up. There was an easy detour herd path cutting right first traversing and then upslope that avoided nearly all of the snow. The snowfield kept 90% of the lower trail traffic from reaching the summit. Got some great close up photos of the mountain goats!

A Night On Bald Mountain  Sucess!

Ammon Hatch and I spent August 13th camping in the Uintas so we could observe the Perseid meteor shower, and we summited Bald Mountain the next day. This was a great weekend getaway.

Best Bang for Your Buck in the Uintas  Sucess!

This is hands-down the first choice in the Uintas if you have one day or one summit in your schedule.

-- Great View (I like the view of the Wasatch to the distant west and the sloping canyons to the south down into the Roosevelt/Vernal basin.)

-- Short Distance (Getting to this high of elevation in such short mileage is rare.)

-- Fun Family/Beginning Hike (This is a humdinger of an introduction to hiking for newbies. I haven't found the elevation to be a problem for those who live in the Mountain West area.)

-- "Summer" Surprises Possible (Snowflakes anytime after mid-August are common, so that makes the kiddos go nuts and they'll never forget it.)


Very crowded and popular for a reason. Highly recommended.
