"This is a mountain loop hike with an optional spur trail to the summit of Old Baldy, offering sweeping views of the northern Black Hills. The Old Baldy Trail, if followed along the western route, begins in a beautiful grove of aspens that includes much parklike terrain. The Old Baldy Trail is a combination loop and spur trail that meanders through prime deer and elk habitat. Throughout the hike the trail is exceptionally well marked. Blazes are abundant and the grade is gentle.The trail could make for an ideal family outing, particularly for those interested in the possibility of observing wildlife. From Old Baldy Mountain, the vistas are satisfying, offering views to the east of Ragged Top and Terry Peak; to the west hikers can view Cement Ridge Lookout. Crow Peak looms in the north, a mountain with a geological background similar to that of Old Baldy."
