Above the infrastructure near the pate

The Okanagan’s Baldy is best known for its ski resort but under all that snow is one of the South Okanagan’s highest peaks. Hike above the last chairlift onto the bald pate and experience some great views from Rock Creek to Oliver.

From the parking area, start by walking up a favourite ski run (quite a lot of trees still at this elevation). Above the highest ski infrastructure there are some old cabins and the forest thins out to make way for a rocky summit.

Directions to Trailhead

There is no trailhead. There is no trail. Since there are ski runs cut into the forest and a general ‘baldness’ to the mountain, it takes some effort to get lost (not impossible though). One suggestion is to park on Tin Horn Rd. That is one of the highest drivable places in Baldy Resort town.
