One of the treasures the lucky folks in the Utah Valley area have at their doorstep is this "little" mountain known as Big Baldy. If you're looking for a medium-size hike in any season, Big Baldy (usually just called "Baldy") is a nice choice. It's the big, obvious lump on the West Face of Timpanogos. It works as a great warm up or work out for more serious ascents, but in Utah terms, it's mild. However, thanks to the rising price of gas, many people are looking for something close to home and can substitute a hike on this mountain to fulfill the need to get a good hike in. If "steep" means anything that raises your heartbeat to your target exercise rate at a normal-to-brisk pace, then Big Baldy provides a great workout!
