Mount Bailey

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.
