We originally planned to start at the Bald Mountain Trail head and hike to the peak of Bald Mountain afterwards. However, there was a huge crowd and we decided it may be too easy for us. We decided to start at the Woods Trail head instead. We hiked Mt Umunhum, over to Bald Mountain then back to parking lot. We ran out of water with a little over a mile left to go. We brought plenty of water for the anticipated 10 or so miles but forgot by starting at Woods Trail we were adding another 8 miles plus it was well into the high 90s. We used our energy chews and gel to get us through. Needless to say, we all downed 2 bottles of water as soon we got to the car. Total miles 19. Rose Peak we are ready for you!!
