used to love hiking here during college. fun place to play on the bike and walk the pup

I will be back to do this one again! There are many ways to reach the summit. We took the back way where the old barn is to your right. This trail is more narrow, steeper, and was inundated with flies. The larger path back down was far more open with a gradual incline and softer ground. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. I won't lie, it was rough for a larger girlie just getting back into hiking, but the view was well worth it!

Spent Sunday hiking up Bald Hill. It's a beautiful and peaceful area. I am just working on getting back into shape and into hiking, so cresting the top of the bill was most difficult for me, but definitely not so hard that I'd never do it again. Got a great workout, and saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

This trail is nice for beginners-moderate hikers because there are multiple cut offs that all you to make a loop as short as about 1.1 miles to as long as 3+ miles.

Beautiful trail. Not to difficult even if you’re out of shape. A few good hill climbs, but overall gorgeous and very fun

Great place to walk the dog and get some exercise. Beautiful on a sunny day but Thursday there was a rainbow across the little valley and I did not have my phone to take a picture! Trails are still muddy in the shade.

Very happy that the people who use these trails clean up after themselves and their animals.

Amazing and rather well maintained.

So fun - quite muddy in January - but still fun.

Very pretty

Beautiful views and a good workout, especially if you take the path on your right after walking past the map.

nice easy walk. We combined it with Mulkey Creek trail, Fitton Green, and Allen Throop loop trail for a long beautiful hike.

Muddy right now, but still a fun little hike. Take your time and step carefully. This is a "do it again" when it's had a chance to dry out.

This is a fun trail during the summer and spring, and is even a pretty decent night hike, but it is by far at its best when covered in snow. A fairly easy hike year round, but be aware that down trees are not uncommon, particularly near the trail heads and may occlude the path.

It's a nice trail and has some dog friendly areas

Excellent trail. Easily about 6-8 feet wide the entire trail. Very well maintained, decent views in all directions along the entire way.

This was a pretty easy hike. I brought my dog, and even had her off leash for about five minutes with no problems at all. Light traffic when I was there. Due to the weather the trail is now very muddy. I highly recommend boots of some sort. The view was nice, but I'm sure it is much more enjoyable in the summer or with snow. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a good time without the pressure of a long hike. I spent approximately 1.5 hours here.

Even on a "busy day", I didn't see that many people on the unimproved trails. The paved trail between parking lots has heavy traffic.
