Ehh. I might go again, a little earlier in the morning just to actually find this trail!! Lol got on the trail around 11am and got down around 3:30 but never found Bald Mtn! Trail markers are WEAK the further up the trail you go and even worse coming down. Rough, very rocky terrain. The view was beautiful up on the peak that we made it to but I would've loved to see it on Bald Mtn.. oh well, save it for another day!

I got there on a saturday around 10AM. there was only 1 other car in the small packing area across from where the trail begins. The trail starts on a incline and you pass by some historic spots with signs that tell you what used to be there. It was pretty icy going to the top of the mountain. Once you get to the top though. you get a amazing view. You go through a lot of rock scrambling which always makes the hike a lot more fun.

The hike is like a roller coaster by bringing you through hills up and down. Markers were easy to locate. I def would try this hike again in the summer when theres no ice.
