This mountain was not named for anyone with the name "Bailey" It was called "Old Baldy" or Mt. Baldy. It is beleved that it was recorded as Mt. Bailey because of poor handwriting. This mountain and "Diamond Lake" at it's base is a great place to go year round. The lake is great for boating and fishing (trout & salmon). Lots of nice camping. In winter Mt Bailey is a popular ski resort. It is a Snowcat sking Mt. with no lifts. As far as climbing Mt Bailey there is a trail that leads up to the top. The trail is 5 miles long and the Elevation gain is 3,068 ft. This make this a Moderate walk up to the summit. This makes it good for someone new to climbing. Then when you are done you can go across OR Hwy 138 and climb Mt Thielsen 9182 ft, or visit Crater Lake National Park about 6 miles from Diamond Lake, and climb Mt Scott 8923 ft.
