Bald Rock is a prominent fixture along the skyline of certain parts of Lake Oroville and is particularly visible from Feather Falls. It's a beautiful vista point on a clear day. Because it's a fairly large area, Bald Rock is a perfect place for hiking and backpacking!

To find Bald Rock, go to Oroville and get onto the Olive Highway, east-bound. It'll then turn into the Oro-Quincy Highway 162. It'll take you over a relatively large bridge and a smaller one some miles after. Continue onward until you hit Bald Rock Road on the right. Be careful though, you'll find it after driving through a curve, so it's easy to zoom by. There will be a small clearing right next to it. Take a right onto that road and continue. There will be a turn-off on the left eventually — there should be a sign indicating Bald Rock. Park there and then explore! As usual, beware of snakes and other critters such as mosquitoes. There are a lot of places to fall, so watch your step.
