This nearly 12,000 peak of the most popular hikes in the Uinta Mountains of Utah At nearly 12,000 feet but under a mile and half to the summit this mountain is a great start for beginners. The trail is easy to follow and the views towards the many surrounding alpine lakes is spectacular. Bring a camera.

I loved all the lakes I got to see while doing this hike. So beautiful! I hiked this 10.29.17 and while there was some snow, it was still completely doable. We were up to the peak in 50 minutes and enjoyed the views from the peak.

Shortest hike for the views/summit! This was the first "real" hike I've done. This is where it all began : ). Saw a lot of children/dogs on this trail. A great experience for the family!

Went up for a nice Sunday hike. there's no shade/cover and it's fairly steep ascent so our smaller dog needed a little help coming down. gorgeous views.

This is a great family trail for most abilities and endurance levels. The view from the top will not disappoint. As well, the trail is usually clear after July 4th, but there will still be snow on or near the trail. One thing to keep in mind is weather. Storms can roll in fast while on top of Bald so be cognizant of that. Fantastic family trail!

This hike was so much fun. We made it up in a little under an hour. Spent an hour on top and got down in 45 minutes (I had to take a billion pictures.) You want to do this hike. No picture will do the view any justice. Be careful if you explore the peak (which is huge), the rocks shift around a lot in some areas and they are big enough that it would really suck if one fell on you. We also saw mountain goats!

This hike was absolutely amazing. It is a bit steep but definitely worth it. I did this in July and the trail did disappear in a small amount of snow for 10 yards...You're exploring a mountain, expect it to get rocky at times. Highly recommend it. The view is breathtaking. Bring a sweater.

I can honestly say, besides Angel's Landing- this hike offers the prettiest views of any Utah hike I've done. You can see tons of lakes from the top and a panoramic view of the uintahs. The views going up were beautiful the whole way as well. Not a hard hike at all. The end is a little sketchy with tons of angular rocks jutting out and steep cliffs, so I put my dog on her leash at that point just to play it safe.

Still some snow on the trail so that made it a little bit more difficult but definitely worth it for the amazing view at the top.

beautiful short hike! There is still a small snow area that you have to cross, shoes with good grip will help. The views are amazing! go early in the morning to avoid thunderstorms.

As always, this is a great, short (but demanding) hike through a beautiful landscape with a fantastic payoff in the views at the top. As of 07/16/2017 there are still 2 places where snow across the trail necessitates a detour or very careful attention to your footing, as slipping would probably have significantly negative consequences. But it's not too challenging.
