A little hard to find the trailhead at first, as they are currently constructing new stairs at the beginning. We missed the scenic vista on the way up (and there is not much of an overlook at the top) but found the views on the way down. A little more than 3.5 hours and that includes stopping for lunch at the top

Great trail. Best views are at 2600 ft elevation lookout to the west. Not much to see at apex of Bald Mountain. Only 4-5 parking spots at trail head so get there early.

One of my first hikes a few years ago in 2013. Beautiful views of Bennington, Vt. We did this in early spring so the trails were a bit wet. All in all a good trip. Planning to go at it again soon with some first timers.

easy beginning, moderate middle with rock scrambling, harder end with parts of intense incline. lovely payoff though, took me 3.25h round-trip.

Great trail! A little muddy this time of year but there was plenty of water for my dogs to drink, which was good. The view from the top is pretty awesome! Well worth the hike. The beginning was a little confusing but just make sure you follow the blue markers and you'll be on the right trail!
