Type of Hike:

Day hike

Trail Conditions:

Trail in good condition


Road suitable for all vehicles


Bugs were not too bad


Snow free

May 2019 – Still lots of wildflowers in bloom along the way, along with plenty of poison oak!  Stick to the trail and you should be fine, leaves of 3…let them be – 4th time hiking up Mount Umunhum, plenty of shade even mid-day. Nice spring afternoon hike.

Condition:  Trail is in excellent condition with a few sturdy bridge crossings.  Mind your step as there is the occasional loose rock/gravel.  Shared with bicycles so be prepared to move over as needed. On a really clear day you can see out to the coast.  No potable water so be sure you are prepared prior to arrival.

Parking:  Very limited number in the Bald Mountain parking area, another option is to park at the top and hike trail from top down and back.
