Hiked it on August 26, 1995, and rook 3 hours up and 3 down, at a slow pace with lots of breaks. Tent clearing at top of West Peak. Steep climbing at times, especially on East Peak.

Hiked again on February 27, 2000, with cramp-ons. Drove up 26 North of Sunday River entrance. Parking Lot on left and marked “Hiking Trails’ with a round brown and yellow wooden sign. Trail to Baldpate starts across the street. Followed white blazes. 2.9 miles from parking lot to top of West Peak of Baldpate. Was easy hike with mild incline and fair amount of down hill until the last mile or less, where it got very steep to the summit. Too foggy and cold to justify going to the East Peak, which was another 0.9 miles from West Peak. Started hike at 10:45 a.m. and ended at 3:30 p.m.
