Ascent of Bald Mountain on 2010-06-16
|Date:||Wednesday, June 16, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5280 ft / 1609 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI drove up from Hwy 62 near Prospect. Bald Mountain is the only mountain I've been on with 2 fire lookouts. On the north side is Halls Point with a nice fire lookout and on the south side is White Point with another fire lookout. They are 2-3 miles apart. I visited both fire lookouts and point 5284. The high point is the closed 5300 ft contour in the middle of the mountain. No trail to the high point, but it is an easy hike through the forest with no views. If you want views, visit the other 3 areas described above. Climbing stats are for all 4 sites combined.
