Bald Mountain

Bald Mountain

Bald Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.847m (9,339ft) above the sea level, located in Tulare County, in the U.S. state of California. It's one of the highest roads of California.

The road to the summit, located within the Sequoia National Forest, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It’s called Bald Mountain Trail (Forest Rte 22S77). The road is usually open from late May/early June to late October/early November, depending on weather. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. At the summit there’s a fire lookout built in 1954. The summit provides superb views towards the north including: Olancha Peak, Mt. Whitney, and Mt. Langley. Looking east you can see all the way to Telescope Peak in Death Valley.
