Add the sweeping views of the Bald Ridge Trail to your Summer Bucket List.
The Bald Ridge Trail in Wyoming begins at the Hogan and Luce Campground Bald RidgeTrailhead. This horseback riding and hiking trail winds for five miles through BLM-managed public lands and state land to the destination of Bald Ridge in the Shoshone National Forest. Once on the forest, additional trails are present. The elevation ranges from 4,880 feet to 8,400 feet. On Bald Ridge, one can see spectacular views of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River to the west and of Heart Mountain to the east.
Wildlife that may be encountered along this trail includes antelope, mule deer, moose, elk, and grizzly and black bear. Waterfowl are often found at the lakes near the trailhead and soaring raptors are often sighted. The trail is steep and arduous requiring good physical condition of both humans and horses.
The lower portion of the trail is marked. The middle and upper portions are not marked or constructed; users must pick their own route up the mountain. Plan your trip: http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Cody/rec/trails.html
