Baldface, Wild River, Basin Trail is a 31.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Intervale, New Hampshire that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until November.
Great views, rugged trail, remote backpacking adventure. We spent the first night at the South Baldface shelter - a short night hike in. The second day we summited South Baldface, North face then took Eagle link back into the wilderness. The eagle link trail is not heavily used and there was significant deadfall on the trail. The Wild River trail is very easy as it is an old railroad bed. We spend the second night at the Spruce Brook campsite at the junction of two lovely babbling brooks.
Great hike! My girlfriend's brother jumped into the Emerald Pool at the beginning of the trail. According to everyone we ran into on the hike we were going around the loop in the wrong direction. We should have taken the left trail when it splits instead of going up the right to hit Eagle Crag first. It is a very long hike for anyone who isn't used to hiking. We got started at like 10 am and walked out of the woods when it was dark after 8 pm. Also saw a horned owl while on the hike. Views are incredible.
