A short but steep hike, with great views. Took a bunch of nice pictures. Will do it again one day.

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.

Ledges trail is a great trail we do every year while we're in Maine. It starts out easy and gradually gets more difficult. Great views about 2/3rds the way up from the Ledges and the summit has great views as well. This time we hiked on a cloudy afternoon and ended up getting poured on. We had had three kids with us and it was warm, so the rain didn't send us back down, but it got very very wet. Great hike though and earlier in the year the hike can yield large quantities of blueberries if you're patient enough to pick the tiny, tart mountain berries.

Ledges Trail can be tough for some, wasn't a good choice to do for my first hike of the season back in May, but the summit is worth the effort. The worst part is the final stretch after you reach the first viewpoint. You can climb up the ladder at the fire tower on top, but it's not for the faint of heart!
