Baldy - Olympic National Forest Professional Review and Guide

"What could be more beautiful than hiking into Royal Basin? Hiking above it and looking down into that glacially carved valley flanked by towering spires and icy summits. The hike to Baldy is brutal—one of the steepest trails in the Olympics.

One section gains more than 2700 feet in 2.1 miles. But the views are supreme: countless islands and mountains and broad emerald valleys. And at your feet, a brilliant alpine tundra flower garden. Start on the gentle Upper Dungeness Trail No. 833.2 through a cool forest of towering firs."
