I've hiked Bald a couple of times. I think I was complaining about it being a hard hike the first time I did it in '05. Went back in June of '08 and I couldn't believe that I was complaining the first time; it was a fun, very easy hike.
usually adding at least Reids.
I hiked this with my dad when I was only 10.. fun!!
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.
Came back on 9/13/19 and did a loop hike of Reids Peak and Bald Mountain with Kendrick (see "Huckleberries, Goats, & [Mostly] Solid Rock" trip report for details).
climbed with the family and the dalmation. early 90s
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.
This is a fun, short hike that is suitable for everyone. The views are outstanding. Consider this a necessary hike when in the Uintahs.
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.
This mountain was really easy but also rocky! The view of all the lakes from the top are great.
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.
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.
Fun short hike. Lots of rain around us, but somehow it never actually rained on us.
Not much solitude, easy, short, yet still worth it. Great views. Continue to Reids Peak to add a little more spice to this one!
First climb and great training climb of many when I lived in Utah.
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.
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!
Fun, short, popular. Overall happy to have done it. I love the Uinta's, and this peak had great veiws of some really cool peaks and beautiful lakes.
beautiful, fast hike-- perfect for those who love short, steep climbs with great payoffs
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!
