There is a boardwalk that takes you all the way to Bald Rock or you can opt to take a dirt trail running beside the boardwalk. The scenic view from Bald Rock is nice but, as for a hiking trail not much to speak of. Nice place to take a short stroll.

Easy walk to the scenic point. The view is beautiful. I took my two boys, under 10, and we went off trail and climbed several rocks along the side of the mountain. It was a great time.

Great, easy-access boardwalk. Perfect for kids and people with mobility challenges.

Awesome views at the end!

This is the most friendly "hike" you can take. It has a boardwalk the entire way so literally anyone can do it. It has people all over it, but you can't argue with the view at the end. Very pretty landscape. You can't get away from the people though

This was the first trail I have ever done with my family. It was very easy because there is a boardwalk you walk the whole way to Bald Rock. At the end you can stay in the boardwalk or get off and explore the scenes. We opted to explore and then walk back on a trail. It was so easy and we finally found an outdoor activity my seven year old loves!

Amazing view at the lookout. I highly recommend standing on the rock and just taking in the beauty of the view.

Beautiful walk. One can use the accessible walkway or take the more rugged "backcountry" trail out to Bald Rock.

Great handicap accessible boardwalk all the way out to Bald Rock and one of the best views from almost the highest point in the state. Restroom located at the parking lot trail entrance. You can choose to walk the boardwalk the whole way out, or go down the stairs a little way in and walk the trail be careful not to walk off the cliff at the end though if you have pets or small children.

There are two ways to get to Bald Rock: 1) very easy walk off the handicapped walkway or 2) the handicapped walkway which makes it very convenient for people with disabilities or who just need an easier route to the scenic view to be able to have the experience of the awesome view -- highly recommended for people who want to experience the outdoors and the view but can't actually hike. For "serious hikers", you will be disappointed except for the view. For a view like this, hike the Pinhoti Trail and check out McDill Pt.
