The trail goes up the mountain, from where nices views of the area are possible. Drawback is that one really needs to go to the summit, as on the way, the views are limited. The trail goes along an old Fire Department trail, and is wide. A shortcut can be taken, going steeply through the woods.

A moderate hike to the top on a roadbed provides 360 degree views of Lake Maligne and area. Bear scat was plentiful, but not steaming ;>)

Rewarding hike with great views! Worth the climb, with endless possibilities once on top! Views of Maligne Lake and the surrounding valleys.

We did this hike today. It was incredibly worthwhile. We took the fire road all the way up and while the shortcut is probably great if you are a strong hiker, the fire road is a bit easier and the walk is scenic in its own right. Once you arrive at the first lookout (with the old hitching post for... More

Great place to see a different view of the lake and glaciers. Gets you away from the crowds too. Well worth the effort

Not worth the effort. Limited views, trails at top were unmarked. We did not know that we embarked on an even further hill leaving us lost on top of the mountain

We took the trail up Bald Mountain. On the way up we took the old fire road ( less interesting but easier to climb) and on the way down - the steeper, more scenic forest trail. When you reach the observation point close to the top, the trails are not very clearly marked. It's another half an hour or so... More

You definitely get the bang for you buck with this hike. It's not too long or too hard, but it gives you great views. Be sure to bring water and food. Don't stop at the view point. Keep going, you'll be glad you did.

It is a nice hike with a very nice view to the mountains and the lake.. do it and you will have a lot of fun. Please be careful and not stop at the view point, you still can hike to the top of the hill.

gradually uphill, but the views are worth it. Once was lucky and followed a cougar up the trail for a bit. never saw it, but enjoyed knowing it was enjoying the same solitude and quiet beauty i was.
