Success  Sucess!

Climbed with parents, wife and three children. All did very well given the extremely hot weather. Nice views from the summit. Very crowded trail with both humans and dogs. The trail head was very packed and caused issues and precarious parking. Would hike again but during the week and not on a weekend.

Short and sweet  Sucess!

Hiked this along with Reids Peak, great day in the Uintas escaping the heat down in SLC. Saw quite a few pika. Maybe half a dozen other hikers, had it mostly to myself (including the summit.) Lots of funky rock cairns at the summit. Two hours round trip.

Fun Easy Hike!  Sucess!

I (Kelli) have done this one before, but Zak hadn't. I forgot how beautiful the view is. So many lakes to see!!! It was pretty busy with people, but didn't interfere too much. Weather was perfect!

Bald Mountain and Wasatch County High Point  Sucess!

A quick, easy hike to almost 12,000'. Combined this with going over to the nearby Wasatch County high point to bag my 7th Utah county high point.

Kid-friendly with awesome views  Sucess!

Hiked up with the family and dogs, then caught some brook trout in one of the fabulous Mirror Lakes afterwards.

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.

Easy/Fun Time!  Sucess!

This was such a pretty hike. My son made it to the top, no complaints!!

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.

Bald Mountain   Sucess!

It was a lovely climb and a fabulous view for such little effort.

Sweet Views  Sucess!

Quick jaunt up, then a run down with my wifey. We did it in an hour round trip.

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.
