  • Beautiful. Great trail for the beginner hiker. Not wheelchair or stroller friendly. The views at the top are incredible.
  • This is an awesome short hike taking only half an hour to hike to the top. And the view up there is amazing.
  • Nice intermediate level hike but not for those who may be afraid of heights 😪 The trail head parking lot is good size but does fill up quickly on weekends (if weather is nice) but has no trash cans so whatever you bring in, please bring out 😊 The trail does start rather nicely but gradually increases in difficulty.. Not a good choice if you are unprepared or physically challenged?.. Noticed a few dogs 🐶 on the trail but 90% were not on a leash.. *Dog Owners Please Take Note* Dog leash is required here! This trail gets some heavy duty use on nice days so be ready to see others on the trail .. Week day hiking is better for lower volume 👍🏼 View from the Rondaxe Fire 🔥 Tower is awesome!!
  • One of my favorite places
  • Bald mountain is one of my favorite places in nys to hike. The fire tower provides an amazing view well worth the climb.
