A high clearance vehicle is recommended to access the trailhead. October and May are the best months to enjoy this hike. This hike involes off trail navigation. Review triplogs, photos and the route to understand the terrain before heading out.

Bald Hill is a benchmark peak in the Prescott national forest. The peak is also a SOTA summit W7A/YV-050 worth 8 points. The hike to the summit is 100% off trail the brush is manageable. Once on the summit you are rewarded with fantastic views of the Prescott Valley the Verde area and surrounding terrain. An additional bonus on the summit is a mostly intact tripod over the benchmark I have never seen more then some wires and small pieces of wood it was really cool seeing this one.
