  • The Bald Rock Development

    Bald Rock has direct access to more than 30 miles of horseback riding trails in Panthertown Valley, dubbed the “Yosemite of the East.” Trails also wander throughout Bald Rock and lead to the Bald Rock Equestrian Center, which is the focal point of the community. Summer brings neighbors together and social gatherings are held most weekends during the season at the Center.

    But the activities don't end there. As part of the Sapphire Valley Master's Association, Bald Rock residents have access to boat rentals at beautiful Fairfield Lake at the base of Bald Rock; golf; tennis; a recreation center with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, game room, putt-putt golf, and exercise facility; kids' summer camps; a zip line; snow skiing and tubing in the winter; and more.
