Bald Hills Summit

Summary:

Hiking to Bald Hills High Summit
The Bald Hills higher summit(or true summit) hikes: are certainly worth the extra effort if your original plan was just to go to the Bald Hills hike lookout.
Hiking Time      We stopped hiking at the lookout to eat and make sure any sweat had dissipated before going on to windy altitudes, but you could probably add half an hour or less to make it to the high summits.

To continue hiking on to the higher Bald Hills summits, you simply keep following the clear narrow hiking trail up.



After the first summit, you will hike down a basin and then back up again. Hikers descend down the basin from Bald Hills High summits.



As mentioned on the previous page, your focus on the hiking path just before reaching the second Bald Hills summit should be at least somewhat on the horizon. The mountain edge will creep up on you and you will find yourself peering over an edge to very far below. If you have trouble with heights, this particular hiking section will require extreme caution.
