Mt. Bailey is the other major peak in the Diamond Lake area; it's neighbor Mt. Thielsen sees more ascents. Lying just west of Diamond Lake, Bailey has a steep 4.9 mile trail leading all the way to the top. According to Sullivan, the final mile is full of surprises: a hidden crater, a rock garden of wildflowers, a double summit and a rock wall with a window overlooking Diamond Lake.
