Spectacular hike that hits 2 summits. A few rugged spots but not too bad. This description does not say that you walk over 1/2 mile into the pond before you hit the trailhead for the mountains. We clocked the total hike at 6.5 miles. Very easy walk into the pond and there is a trail around the pond for anyone who just wants an easy day. Not sure what the mileage around the pond would be.

is an easy start but does get harder as you near the top with some parts of the trail being mainly climbing up semi steep rock and not just a dirt trail. has some beautiful views at the top and is totally worth the hike.

Beautiful hike and views. We had to side step parts of the Speckled mountain trail as they were covered with ice but it was November 26th.

We hiked up to Bald and then over to Speckled carrying 30 lb bags to stay over night on Speckled. It was very tough carrying the bags and we stopped a lot to break, but the summit of both Mts was breathtaking. On way to Speckled there was two very steep inclines. Moose poop all over on top of Speckled. Our campsite was awesome and faced Abbott Pond. We were protected from wind. Amazing experience. Aug 21, 2017

Hiked in July 2016. This is a wonderful place. Bald Mountain is easy to reach, and Speckled Mountain is very peaceful and secluded with spectacular views. Did not hike the trail around the pond, but will do that next time. A hidden gem!
