Bald Mountain is located near the eastern boundary of Klamath County in Oregon. It is 7,393 feet tall.
From La Pine, head south on US 97 and turn left on highway 31 which is heading towards Lakeview. I'm not sure how many miles but it seemed like the turnoff was about 13-15 miles from the junction of US 97 -highway 31. The road you are looking for takes off to the right as a good quality dirt road and is signed (not obvious) as FS 2516. As mentioned, the road is FS 2516, stay on it until you come to this next junction, the junction with the Bald Mtn lookout road. It seemed like it was about another14 or so miles from highway 31 but the GPS coordinates will make easy work of the direction finding. After locating the lookout road, drive up it until you reach a switchback that has a locked gate just beyond it. Park
HERE. Proceed on foot past the gate and it is 1.25 miles to the summit area, obvious by the lookout structure at the top. Allow about an hour and a half for the round trip.
No forest pass is required but exercise caution during the high fire season. This area can become extremely dry and it is a good idea to contact the local forest service ranger station for up to date information
