Route: Bald Mountain Trail  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Bald Mountain Trail  Sucess!

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.

Good hike  Sucess!

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

Standard Route  Sucess!

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.

Easy and nice view  Sucess!

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

Crowded summit, good views  Sucess!

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.

Easy Hike = Great View  Sucess!

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.

Bald Mountain Trail  Sucess!

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

Route climbed: Bald Mountain Trail  Sucess!

Not much solitude, easy, short, yet still worth it. Great views. Continue to Reids Peak to add a little more spice to this one!

Bald Mountain Trail  Sucess!

This was a fun easy trail to an awsome vantage point to view good part of the Uintas. An awesome hike to do with friends and family.

Awesome views  Sucess!

made the summit in about 35 min. the easiest peak above 11k in the state, by far. incredible views from the top - the Uintas to the East and most of the Wasatch to the West, even though they are probably 70 miles away. Several lakes are visible from the top as well, including the popular Mirror Lake to the east. This would make a great family hike - just be sure to watch your kids at the top!

Route Climbed: Bald Mountain Trail Date Climbed: 8/8/05  Sucess!

A very easy hike with great views. T-storms brewed up quickly on the hike up, and at the top my camera and trekking poles started making a sound similar to frying bacon. Lots of static in the air! Had to high tail it off!

Route Climbed: Bald Mountain Trail   Sucess!

Nice easy hike on a good trail. The crux was a small vertical snow climb about 12 feet high with good steps already kicked for us. Awesome Views from an inevitable peak.

The second time, we were in the area so we ran up it for the heck of it.
