Bald Mountain Recreation Area has some of the steepest hills and most rugged terrain in southeastern Michigan. Camping is limited to rustic cabins, but the extensive trails, inland lakes, trout streams and wild game provide recreation opportunities all year long.

I couldn't even find the Bald Mountain Trail (it's in the Bald Mountain Recreation Park) we took today. Hence I post it under the one that's closest. If you follow the direction that AllTrails provides for you'll get to the other Bald Mountain trail.

Take Greenshield Rd off 24 to get directly to the trail head. If you enter the park through the main entrance, you can park at the second or third to last parking lot and take a short trail that connects to the trail head. We took our dogs on a late Sunday afternoon. The trail is mostly wooded and an easy hike. You share the trail with bikers. We didn't see too many, so no big deal while we were there. You can extend or shorten your hike as you like, as there are many trails across.

Fun local trail. We hiked it with our kids. 4 year old managed to walk quite a bit of it on his own. Baby cruised in big wheeled jogger stroller. Very quiet and peaceful trail.

Nice and shade covered for a hot day. There were a ton of frogs and toads, mushrooms to look at and little lakes and ponds to enjoy!

We go nearly every week to do at least one of the loops. Orange is the longest. Took my dog last week and he enjoyed it too!

Love the trail. I agree with another reviewer. At marker 7, it's a little confusing as to which way to go. Other than that, no problem. The trail is hilly and gives you a real work out!

Beautiful scenery. Took our dogs along and greatly enjoyed it!

It a great trail! I did find a couple of spots the markings were confusing, thanks to GPS we were fine.
