1. Parking Area

There is a $3 access fee that needs to be paid at the parking lot. I've included a photo of Bald Mountain Pass from just above the parking lot on the trail up Bald Mountain.

2. Summit of Bald Mountain

At 11,947 feet you are the top of Bald Mountain which is one of Utah's 100 most prominent peaks. You will have great views in all directions and down towards the small surrounding lakes including the Mirror Lake Recreational Area.
