Mount Bailey Professional Review and Guide
"Mount Bailey offers a great contrast to Mount Thielsen across the way. Its rounded mellow slopes make for a lot of walking for the elevation gain, while Thielsen demands the hiker to make a lot of altitude in a hurry. For the most part this is a great straightforward march up a beautiful old volcano that gets you up above Diamond Lake and gives you a view across the way to Mount Thielsen. This is a perfect climb for someone who’s in great shape but not necessarily technically oriented. There just aren’t too many challenges on the way to the summit other than navigational issues. Keep in mind, however, as you merrily march up the hill that this is an avalanche-prone area."
