Did the Fire Wardens Trail and from trailhead it was 5 miles round trip. It starts out with a gradual consistent incline and levels off for about a quarter mile then once you past the rundown bridge the incline continues to increase all the way to the top. So pretty much going up 95% of the time. The trail has lots of big smoother rocks so will be slippery when it's wet but there are paths on the side in a lot of those places. The trail is well blazed with red markers and easy to navigate thru I thought the view was pretty impressive and made the hike worth it. The day was clear and could see NH mountains! It was a great day hike and hope this review helps.

This mountain has a very steady incline, definitely not a hike for beginners. But once you get to the top, there is a very nice view.

definitely got my heart rate moving. easy to follow the yellow blazes up and back down. I'd bring bug spray, but the bugs weren't crazy annoying by any means! saw a lot of Pink Lady Slippers growing on the side of the trail.

Hiked the FireWardens trail. Easy first mile or so then the terrain gets rocky. Still easy in hiker language. 2.5 miles trailhead to summit. Took 2hr 20 min round trip with an inexperienced friend.

I hiked the bald peak trail both ways. It was a gorgeous hike. A bit challenging but not too bad. Make sure you stop off at needles pt. It's a little cave mossy waterfall and definitely worth the slight detour.

Great! Certainly an incline most of the way. The view was worth it. I'd say it's a little more challenging than a beginner but it's worth trying out! I would hike it again.

Definitely challenging for a beginner! Steady incline the whole way up. Absolutely worth it for the incredible view. Only saw one other person the whole time! (Tuesday in spring)

Nice trail to hike. First mile relatively easy. Second mile to summit is rocky, hilly and steep. Lots of opportunities to roll your ankle..especially on icy rocks hidden under fallen leaves. Beautiful views from the summit!

First ever mountain hike.Stayed at pleasant mountain camping area and did it early afternoon. Many people on the ledges trail. Steady climb to the top and shady for the first half. Awesome views and not very difficult. Would love to explore the other trails next time I'm in maine!

Moderately difficult trail particularly on the way down. There are beautiful views every fifteen minutes. A great place to see Hawks. Definitely not for the unprepared hiker.
