The hike is 2 miles from Bald Mountain Pass (10,715 ft.) to the Summit of Bald Mountain (11,943 ft.). The summit offers a spectacular view of Hayden and Agassiz peaks in the High Uintas Primitive Area to the east, and the peaks and lakes of the Lakes Country to the west.

Additional Details:
A large snowfield often blocks part of the trail on the south face until mid-summer...This is a very popular dayhike on weekends and holidays. These trails received heavy use by day hikers and backpackers on weekends in July and August...The trail climbs steadily over rocky terrain. Hikers of all levels of fitness make it to the summit by simply adjusting their climbing speed to match their ability. Most sections of this trail system are well marked and easy to follow. The section between the Bald Mountain Trailhead and Meadow Lake follows a cat road that was constructed to rebuild the Meadow Lake Dam. The one exception is the spur leading to the Weber River. This piece of trail is very steep and poorly marked. ..At the trailhead there are picnic tables and pit toilets in the picnic area, but no water. There is plenty of parking.
