Bald Mountain is a high and prominent mountain summit in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains of North America. The 13,690-foot (4,173 m) thirteener is located in Arapaho National Forest, 5.5 miles (8.9 km) southeast (bearing 135°) of the Town of Breckenridge in Summit County, Colorado, United States.

It may be reached by a technically-undemanding though long and roundabout route from Breckenridge, initially through forest and then open country; though as for all mountains of this elevation, altitude sickness is a potential danger as well as afternoon thunderstorms.

Extensive views of the surrounding area may be enjoyed from the summit on a clear day.
