Owner description: Low elevation hiking trail that culminates in a scenic overlook on Bald Mountain.
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Last year we hiked to the top of Bald Mountain, and this year we decided to hike down. From the top, it is about a 2 ½ hour hike down the 5 mile trail. It was hard on our knees and ankles, but we were more focused on the beauty of the hike rather than our hurting bodies! I would suggest going early in the morning to beat the heat of the sun. My husband and I only brought one water bottle each, but we easily could have consumed more. One thing is for sure, it is a lot easier going down than up!

The fortunate thing is they make snow when it is a lean year. We were lucky and they had a foot of powder then sun the rest of the week!

If you don't have much time, want trees and shade, or just need to warm up and get used to the altitude, this is an ideal trail. Located by the River Run Lodge, it is easily accessible by any car or the local bus.

If you climb to the top of Baldy, you will have accomplished a great hike. The trail steadily ascends, so for those who are not accustomed to the altitude, it can be a strenuous hike.

We actually did the Lower River Run Trail and then cut over to the road and took it to the Roundhouse. Once we got up to the restaurant we relaxed and had a drink at the bar and then took the Gondola back down the mountain. Excellent views! The road is like walking straight up the mountain so I don't recommend this if you are not an experienced hiker. It is very strenuous but very challenging - great cardio! I am not sure how long our hike was. I am guessing 4 or 5 miles.
