went out there this morning on 6/22/18. it was a very nice morning as there was a bit of a haze and not too hot. I was the only one there at 9am and it was very peaceful. It is very easy to get to the trailhead but if you're using google maps, it will take you a few feet further before telling you that you have arrived. if you pass the sign that says "big bald rock trail" just u-turn and you will see the gravel entrance where the sign in. as far as going up, the trail is well marked until you start getting to the more rocky areas. there are orange tags on the trees to help guide you back and just remember landmarks to remind you of where to go. other than that, it was easy and quick to get to the top and a beautiful view.

I have visited Bald Rock twice now and plan to go back many more times. I just love this place. It's an easy hike with amazing views. I love that it is both kid and dog friendly. My kids had a blast exploring and climbing up the rocks. We packed a lunch and had a picnic up there. It's truly a spectacular, majestic place. If you have not yet visited I highly recommend that you do. It's defiantly worth the trip out there. I love it!!

my wife and i went today and it was simply beautiful. beautiful day to be on top of the rock. we climbed to the top hung our feet off the edge and ate lunch while overlooking the forest below. hawks flying directly in front of us made for the perfect setting for a picnic in the sky. if you haven't been to this place yet GO GO GO GO! you wont be disappointed. easy trails. plenty of room for kids to play and pets. just be safe on the drive up. the roads get very narrow with alot of turns! safe take your family and enjoy the beauty this place has to offer...and please...clean up after yourselfs. " you pack it pack it out"..dont ruin it for the rest of safe!

Saw this on AllTrails and thought it would be a great place to see a beautiful sunset. Drove up one evening with my daughter and made the short hike up. Much better in person than seeing it in pictures. Was able to explore a bit and catch most of the sunset before having to head back to the car before it got dark. Will definitely come back leaving more time to picnic and hike around the rocks

Short hike to beautiful views of the valley. Lots of boulders to explore. Great for kids, picnic, or just relaxing outdoors.
