Trail Information

Highlights

Bald Mountain Trail keeps testing you and your rig until you make it or give up along the way. As you and your rig are pushed to the limits you witness spectacular panoramic views of the entire Matanuska-Susitna Valley making this one of the best off-road trails in Alaska. You can also see the wreckage of a B-29 on the side of the mountain. This trail was featured on Episode 57 of Dirt Every Day - Alaskan Army Truck Adventure as well as Nitto's 2016 JK Experience, clearly it is worth the visit! Breathtaking views abound on this one! Come prepared and bring a camera!

Tons of beetle killed spruce everywhere along the trail. The trail itself is in good condition with fall colors showing and leaves starting to fall.

The trail was very wet and sloppy, several rigs got stuck before Waypoint 2 along where the new fence is bordering private property.

We went for a night run and only made it 2.8 miles in before the big mud puddle before more hill climbs. Conditions were good, although due to it raining when we were out on the trail the mud became very slippery. We turned around just after 2 hours on the trail.

We went for an adventure while on our honeymoon and had a great time on the trail. No we did not cut the hearts in the tree (those aren't even our initals)-unfortunately those were already there.

The first hill along the trail was glare ice. I happened to be in the neighborhood and wanted to see what the trail conditions were like, and lucky for the two guys in this old Nissan D21 I came by and winched them back on the icy trail and back down to safety minimizing the chance of them rolling over down the side of the hill.
