Bald Eagle Peak is located in Kern County, 4 miles south of
Bodfish/Lake Isabella, 155 miles from Los Angeles. It lies within the
Sequoia National Forest.
Bald Eagle Peak was added to the HPS Peak List
See the Summit Signature for
more history and some background about the name of the peak.
HPS has two current documented routes to the
peak. Route 1 is 1 ½ miles round
trip with a total of 600' of gain, and sidehills on a use trail around
an intermediate bump before scrambling up some easy Class 2 rock to the summit.
Route 2 is 1.2 miles and ascends a gully to
a ridge thence to the summit. The Class 2 rock may be easier on Route 2.
