Bald Mountain reviews
This is an intermediate trail with great views at the top - as well as a fire tower. A slow and steady approach is best. The 'trail' is very rocky. Bring lots of water, good shoes and your camera... more »
Good trail and fabulous views from several locations near the top. Great place to have a picnic on top to the mountain. Go for it! more »

Beautiful trail and a pretty easy hike on the rocks. This trail is very popular, so there are many other people hiking here. It's a gorgeous view at the top!
This is a fun and easy hike. There are wonderful clear areas with vistas of the other peaks. You will see young kids and dogs following adults , so its not to hard. Pack a lunch and enjoy the views from the top.. There is a fire tower to add to the fun hike. We bring friends to the Mountain and then on to old Forge which is close by.
Nice short relaxing hike that can be completed by anyone. There are some areas of exposed rock but for the most part it’s an easy hike. There is a large free parking lot area and portable toilets. Parking lot fills up quickly! Views are great and there is a fire tower that gives you a full 360 view.
Awesome family hike. My 5 year old made it to the top and up the fire tower. Views are outstanding!
What a great day hike for beginner hikers like myself and epically great for kids! My kids had a blast and my 2 year old was able to climb to the top with very little help and was lucky enough to catch a shoulder ride most of the way down. The views were amazing and we met some very friendly people along the way! It seems to be a very well hiked mountain and we even met some dogs on our hike! The only reason I'm giving this a 4 out of 5 is because some of the areas were very slick and hard to maneuver. This was the 1st mountain my kids hiked and that truly can't wait to do another!
