Mt. Bailey Trail

The Mount Bailey Trail begins on a lodgepole pine covered flat. From there, it travels through open stands of mountain hemlock and true fir. Timberline is reached about one mile from the summit. The last half mile is quite steep and rocky and may be too difficult for small children.
The volcanic origin of the mountain becomes evident above timberline with many interesting geological formations. Mt. Thielsen and Diamond Lake are in the foreground with the Cascades in the north and Mt. Shasta in the south (visible on a clear day).
The first two miles of the trail is used for Nordic skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. The entire trail is closed to motorized vehicles.
Directions: From Roseburg: Travel east on Highway 138 and turn west onto Road 4795, the north entrance to the Diamond Lake Recreation Area. Proceed 3.5 miles along the east side of the lake to the southeast end of the lake and turn right following Road 4795. Proceed 1.5 miles and turn left onto Road 4795-300. The trailhead is on the right in 1.3 miles.
