The Ted Stiles Preserve stretches across almost 1,800 acres of a ridge running roughly east-west, between Fiddlers Creek Road to the south and Pleasant Valley Road to the north. Baldpate Mountain offers some of the most extensive and rugged walking in Mercer County. An extensive network of trails totaling about 10 miles. Some old logging roads and some specially built trails, lace the southern and northern flanks of the ridge, and a 2-mile trail runs along its spine. There are great views of the Delaware River to the south, historic farmland to the north, and on clear days the Philadelphia skyline to the southwest. Ruins of a 19th century settlement and scattered farms can be found on or near some of the Baldpate trails. Most trails involve climbing or descending, sometimes steeply. Some sections of trail may be wet and muddy. Some trails include steep stone steps, which require a moderate degree of caution. None of the trails are paved.

Had higher expectations for a preserve. A lot of invasive plant species along the trail. Not far enough for me from suburban noise of lawn mowers.

Decent trail, some rocks to climb on the summit trail, interesting ruins hidden near the trail in several locations. Peaceful and easy hike, nothing too tough. Several side trails not marked.

Great place, going back soon to see more of it since I couldn't stay long the first time. Love the uneven and rocky footing in places. Pretty secluded, but I was there on a weekday, only saw 3 people and a dog. Trails are really well marked, which is nice because I get lost and have zero sense of direction!
