Very windy above tree line. You can only get 3.5 miles into the trail right now. Still a nice drive.

Nice and easy double track. Was in 4 High most of the way up, probably could have managed 2 wheel drive til hitting more loose rock. Hiked up about a mile from where the road was blocked towards the top of Bald Mountain. Great views, excellent panorama. Does get windy and chilly in some areas.

Great hike. Around 10.5 miles round trip from lowest trailhead (the road) to the summit, 3000 vertical gain on the dot. Herd of mountain goats roaming around 13k. Glorious, lightly trafficked hike. Go get it..

This map and overview is misleading if you want to hike to the Summit. This map takes you to the moderate parts of the hike, once you pass this section the hike becomes a medium to hard level scramble (depending on your experience) over 4 false summits to reach the actual summit of Baldy. It is very windy and can be cold. Be prepared to use your hands and search for the trail and be patient.

We started in the afternoon and only made it 4mi (12k elevation) in before turning around. Made the mistake of thinking it was 8mi out-and-back. It’s not. It’s 8mi point-to-point, 16mi round trip. Sigh. Stunning view of Breckenridge and the ranges surrounding the town. Not sure what views are at the summit. We saw some deer and humans. No goats.

I might’ve been the first person to make it past the snow drifts in a vehicle at around 3 mile mark this season. Was a little sketchy, but made some nice tracks in the snow for everyone, for the next couple of weeks or so (until it melts). In a stock Lexus GX460 but with all terrains. Steep climb in some of the areas but very easy as long as you have 4x4. You may not even need it, but wouldn’t suggest going up if your vehicle doesn’t have it. Made it to the top where you can’t drive any further. Unbelievable views and well worth the 3.5 mile ride up (took around an hour one way).

Fun offroad trail. Nothing too crazy but gorgeous views! Parts of the trail are overgrown but was still able to get through with no trouble.

I’m sure it would’ve great if there wasn’t so much snow on July 5th. Had to turn around a couple miles in because of deep snow drifts. We were equipped with 37” tires and 3.5 inch lift on our rubicon

Started out at 1pm. Weather was perfect. Lots of great views.You can see Breckenridge. Dry, wide trail. Many people drive vehicles on it too but that didn't bother us. There is water trickling some. The snow pack is minimal. I wore hiking shoes and had no problems. Take water and enjoy!

Wasn’t what I would call a trail, more a road, steep vehicle traffic annoying, beautiful view spectacular. Third trail in three days, was fatigued, will give it another chance some other day

Nice 4th of July hike, despite the mountain bike race that shared the road/trail for about 1/2 mile. Some snow on trail in patches starting about 2.5 miles in. We turned around at mile 3. Fun hike with gorgeous views.

Great trail, 2017 Raptor handled with ease to the snow drifts, decided to hike the remaining distance to the first peak. Definitely a great trail for both hiking and easy wheeling

Great views. Ran into some snow drifts about 2 miles in and went off trail. Made it to a peak before the main peak.

Great hike, not too challenging but toward the top the snow is still quite deep on the trail. We didn’t have the right equipment to walk in or on the snow so we turned back a little after the 2 mile mark, after passing the Little Tommy Mine and taking the next switchback. The views from there of the Tenmile Range are utterly spectacular and well worth the trip. Only saw one hiker and three mountain bikers the whole way. The road was still closed to motorized vehicles.

Made it about 2 to 2.5 miles to the last major switch back at 11,700 feet. Trail completely covered by snow at that altitude. Could’ve kept going up but grew increasingly concerned about postholing and concerned about descending thru ice, snow, etc.. If we had crampons or snowshoes, we could have ventured further. FWIW, we’re from the Midwest

Hiked it this afternoon. No signs of foot traffic anywhere above 12,000 feet made for a tough ascent and descent for that matter. Needed snowshoes above the Iowa mill.
