Baldy Pass Trail

This trail is popular with downhill mountain bikers and hikers. The trail is 13.7 km from Baldy Pass Trailhead to Lusk Creek Day Use Area or 15.9 km from Wasootch Day Use Area to Lusk Creek Day Use Area. Baldy Pass Trail can be made into a loop if combined with Highway #40. From Baldy Pass Trailhead, the trail crosses Highway #40 and, after 1 km, begins a steady climb to Baldy Pass. The view from the pass is obstructed by thick forest. From Lusk Creek Day Use Area, hikers, bikers and equestrian users traverse through a timber harvested zone, which provide nice views of Barrier Lake. The trail then becomes a steep climb to the pass.


Equestrian riders must turn back 2.5 km from Baldy Pass. That is, equestrian riders are permitted only on the first 7.5 km of trail from Lusk Creek Day Use Area.
