Located in the hills just west of Central City, Bald Mountain Lane is one of the primary access points into the Yankee Hill network of 4x4 trails. Originally constructed as a supply road to the outlying mines in the area, it connects the county roads above Central City to the east end of Yankee Hill. In addition, Bald Mountain Lane passes the interesting and historical Bald Mountain Cemetery and is a beautiful drive through the forest.

Trail is open and I good shape. Pretty dry for the most part. This trail is great to get you ready for the ones ahead. Be prepared to share the road with.

Based on reports from nearby trails, the trail is probably very difficult or impassible due to snow.

Per the National Forest Service: FORT COLLINS, Colo (Nov. 9, 2020) – More forest closures are being lifted across the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests as all Stage 3 restrictions are rescinded beginning at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10. Closures will remain in place around areas that experienced wildfire in Grand, Boulder and Larimer counties. These fire areas present a public safety threat as burned trees can fall unexpectedly, hot spots are still burning, and new hazards can be hidden under snow.
