Nice loop hike with many vistas, lots of blueberries in August The Bald Mountain Trail is noted for its vistas, blueberries, and wildflowers. Four vistas located at rock promontories along the trail offer panoramic views of the Green Mountain range, Otter Creek and Cold River valleys, as well as Rutland City. The East Loop is 3.3 miles long and the West Loop or Lower Loop is 0.9 miles. The hike has mostly moderate grades with a few steep decents on the West Loop and the end of the East Loop.

Easy to get to and gorgeous views. The hike itself isn't hard, honestly, but you get some nice varied terrain. The summit view is kind of blocked by trees, but other viewpoints on the mountain more than make up for it. Great way to burn an afternoon.

Awesome view from vistas. There is some trees down from the storm, however there is paths around. There some planned maintenance pink Ribbons along the way. This was my first time on this trail. Steep in spots, great cardio workout. Also wet in places. You will see where main trial turns into right hand side of the loop. If you stay to the left,'you will then see

hiked this in April with my sister, brother -in-law and my 2 kiddos (9, 7). it was the kids' most difficult hike yet but they powered through. views were incredible and we look forward to heading up again!

I don't know how this is classified as hard, compared to what? Mt Moosilauke is hard; this trail is moderate at its most challenging sections. Great for a few hours in the afternoon with the family. I took my seven year old up this morning (11/29) and it was frosty toward the top. The wind was a bit much, so we didn't finish the whole loop. Definitely a trail I will frequent as I live in Rutland, but best done in late spring or early fall.
