nice trail with some great views when getting near the top. the trails are nicely marked.
Very nice view. The walk up from the lower entrance had some areas that were a bit challenging, but not difficult. The decent was easier.
the view was amazing and well worth the hour drive for me!!!
nice hiking trail. some rocky grades. bring a walking stick.

There are two ways to get to Bald Rock. One is through the Bald Rock trail which is a medium level difficulty hike with some steep ascent. You can also reach it by using the Frohock trail which has a more gradual slope.
The view of Linconville and Northport is wonderful. A great hike if you want to reach a scenic view.
It was a nice little hike, and a great place to go and have lunch with a view!
Take the first trail to the left... 2.1 miles to the top. A little wet during the thaw but somewhat challenging. The views from the top are as good as Bar Harbor. Continue on the trail to get down... much easier.
Beautiful environments to hike through starting in pleasant glade, moving upward on well-defined trail from lowland flowers through soft pine needle floor to tree-shrouded barren knob promontory marked by nicely squared 6ft high cairn. Continue following blue trail markers south off peak as trail ends on barren granite hill with huge 270-degree vista of Penobscot Bay, sailboats off Lincolnville Harbor, many lakes, ponds and a descriptive sign board detailing geographical points of interest.
Very enjoyable hike. Great view & blueberries await you at the top.
Great hike. Great workout and beautiful view. Only issue was directions. Trail head is on the left at park entrance.
Loop, with Frolock trail. Two lean tos and outhouse near the peak.

Hiked this trail today, Oct. 25, the day was one of those days that makes us happy to live in Maine. Although the day started out foggy, the overcast sky's cleared before the hike started. The dirt trail is an relativity easy walk, assuming that you've been fairly active. At 1 1/4 miles the trail branches off the road and into the woods. The 1/2 mile hike to the summit is a fairly steady climb that includes a wonderful stone staircase and many roots. At the top you are rewarded with a wonderful view of the bay below. My wife who hasn't been active this summer found this to be a challenge, while I found it to be an easy climb to the summit. If you haven't been active beware that this is a steady, but gradual climb. If you have been active,you'll be able to relax and enjoy.
Well worth the hike. Views at the top are great. Will return in the fall to see the foliage.
Fun area. Starts off with a fairly nice dirt road and various trails branch off. I will definitely go back and it looks like there may even be some mountain biking trails. Beautiful view from the top.
Great hike for a good workout and the reward of an awesome view of Penobscot Bay and islands.
