Located in the Cascade Range, Mount Bailey, the rounded shield volcano offers great slopes and snow, attracting all kinds of winter sport fans.
The elevation can reach up to 8363 ft/2549 m and due to its morphology, it does not require special skills to climb, but you need to be adequately fit.
A nice period to climb is July to October. It is really worth climbing on the top of the mountain, as the spectacular view will definitely repay you for your effort. The trail is rather abrupt, but not dangerous and also rocky at some points especially on the top, which has a lot of scrambled rocks. You should come equipped with all the necessary gear, especially if you have planned a two day trip.
Bare in mind that in winter, the weather conditions on this mountain are unpredictable and an avalanche can easily be produced, so be well informed and prepared even for such an event, before packing your bags. Surely you can find lodging nearby, but if you want a more primitive experience, maybe you should try Hemlock Butte Ski Cabin, not far from the spot. However you might need to make reservations first.
