“A short, easy trail with breathtaking scenery and terrain, that goes to Bald Mountain Viewpoint high on Bald Mountain.”— Joan Pendleton
Bald Mountain Trail traverses an extremely steep brush covered hillside, for the first one-third mile. The rugged ridges of the Santa Cruz Mountains are across a deep creek valley, to the right of the trail, making for a rather breathtaking experience.
After rounding a bend to the right, the grass-covered summit of Bald Mountain comes into view. From here, it is a short distance to the dome shaped summit of Bald Mountain at 2,387 feet.
