Bald Mountain is a peak in the western Uinta Mountain Range in northeastern Utah, United States. It is an easy hike from Bald Mountain Pass,[citation needed] and has views of the surrounding areas. The mountain is home to mountain goats, pika, and a number of species of wildflowers.

The trail gains 1,250 feet (381 m) of elevation in 1.4 miles (2 km) and due to the high elevation (the trailhead is about 10,700 feet above sea level) it is a moderately strenuous hike with no shade. The hike to the summit can be completed in 2 to 3 hours round trip.
