Bald Mountain Trail

Tuesday, February 27, 2024

Other Names

Anchorage Recreation Management Area, Bald Mountain Ridge, B 29 Trail, B-29 Trail, Talkeetna Mountain Range

Last Known StatusOpen

This trail is about 22 miles long and starts out as a rough dirt road in a wooded forest for the first few miles but becomes more of a technical trail as you go up in elevation. The trail eventually climbs above the tree line and leads toward Bald Mountain Ridge.

The trail can get very muddy and has wide mud holes that can last well into the late summer months. A side trail leads to a memorial plaque and wreckage of a B-29 plane that happened in 1956.
