Went along shore of Willard Pond, could hear loons but did not spot them. Up Bald Mt trail, stopped at ledges for a bit then headed down Tamposi Tr.

Great hike but the reports of wasps at the summit are true so be careful.

I've hiked this a bunch of times and it's always great. The views up top are beautiful and you can be up and down pretty quickly. I would rate it moderate instead of easy.

Note: I hiked this on July 28 and was stung by an aggressive wasp at the summit. There have been other reports of people getting stung on the summit too. Be cautious, there must be a nest somewhere and they're stinging without provocation.

When the trail splits for bald mountain between uphill to the left or straight/Right, Right is much much shorter and you can still hit the other view points that way

We took the left which was much longer, not well maintained or marked very well in some places.

Easy short trail, Dog and 6 year old did fine

Beautiful area. We used a GPS to get to the location and it brought us in from the all access road. DON'T recommend this (Blue marker trail is what we took in, over grown and not alot of markers). Thankfully we are avid hikers and managed to find our way to the actual trail. If you use a GPS to the parking lot it tells you that you have reached destination, go another half mile down the road to the boat landing area to enjoy this hike. Yellow/Red markers are much better and great views/hike.

short but rather steep, with a rewarding view from the ledges.

A great short hike with a decent view. Perfect for beginners and enjoyable for my experienced hikers as well. Love local little hikes like this one

Beautiful views from the 2 ledges. Very wet trail from the last 3 days of rain so care was needed in maneuvering the trail. Some blazes were missing so we had to backtrack a few times. Very steep in some parts. Great workout.

I don't think this trail should be rated easy. Nonetheless this trail is great. Awesome views of the rolling hills and Willard Pond from the top. Beautiful stroll along the pond on the way back.
