Route Description for Mount Bailey Hike

If you are getting acclimated to the high altitude of the Colorado wilderness, then the Mount Bailey Hike is the perfect introductory excursion. Hike up the well-marked path to the summit of Mount Bailey; you will be astounded by the breathtaking views this small mountain provides. The Mount Bailey Trail is short and sweet and lined with benches the whole way up. Thus, it is the perfect path for those with limited hiking experience and small children. Hike through the lovely forest land to the overlook.

Hidden in a residential neighborhood, the Mount Bailey Hike is off-the-beaten-path. Take Burland Drive Road and find the Mount Bailey Trailhead in Youth Park. Track southwest from the trailhead onto the Mount Bailey Trail. Hike through the mixed spruce forest and mind the odd root on the trail. As you climb up the route, the path will wind you through a few switchbacks before delivering you to the summit.

At the summit of Mount Bailey, tree coverage is sparse, so expect windier conditions at the peak. Explore the rocky mountain top and enjoy the impressive vistas of the Front Range’s snow-dusted peaks. Revel in the alpine scenery and when you are ready to descend, retrace your steps back to the parking lot.
