Totally decimated during the #BearFire wildfire on Sept 8, 2020. The forest landscape will never be the same; not in our lifetimes. Amazing views from the top of Bald Rock, the granite dome seen behind Lake Oroville. This is the shortest hike with the best views over the North Sacramento Valley. Access via Bald Rock Road.
