BackpackingBlowdown
First to Review

Big blowdown near the top of Bald Mountain. Was planning to stay at the campsite up there but it was giving me major heebie-jeebies with how many trees were down. There also wasn’t a clear space big enough for my 2p team. Hiked about a mile back down trail to camp in the woods. Overall, beautiful trail without much traffic!!
