Make no mistake, this trail is not marked in the least, nor will you find any apparent footpaths (until you get close to the top), but still a tremendous short climb. Just follow the trail marker on AllTrails through the field//woods and you'll be on the right track. Once on the ridgeline between Reids and Bald peak you can just find your way up to Reid, it's pretty easy to locate. Be prepared to scramble over a lot of loose boulders a good bit of the way. If you want the same views as Bald without the lines of folks and are up for a bit of finding your way around, this summit is very rewarding.

This hike is beautiful and offers amazing views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. Though you can climb it from bald mountain down the ridge, I think the easier route is around the side of bald mountain along the notch mountain trail. After you jump off the trail there are quite a few meadows which are easy to hike until you get to a steep climb up to the ridge through some thick brush. The ridge is a little scary but stay towards the left side going up and you're fine.
