Nice views, nice trail. This out-and-back took me about 3.5hours, hardest part was up and down Bald Mountain. Views from the top of Bald are nicer than from the top of Saddleback. All in all, it was about 5.5 miles. This trip is one to avoid in wet weather unless you are an experienced hiker, many slippery spots on the way down.

Ascent starts right away

Don’t forget to enjoy the wild blueberries at the top !

Includes peaks of Bald Mountain and Saddleback Mountain. Bald Mountain is about a 1.75 mile round trip with wonderful views, at which point you can turn back or continue on to Saddleback Mountain. The Bald Mountain portion is still moderate - as other mentioned, the trail gets fairly steep fairly fast.

Steep grade. The view was great at the top.

went today very good hike

Amazing hike! Spectacular views and a fairly good challenge. With it so windy, didn't even need bug spray!

Moderate trail, once you start it just goes up for 1 mile. beautiful views of the Weld, Mount Blue area.
