Lots of rocks and quite steep at first and then gives way to a lovely fern forest before the summit where you can see Bennington down below. A challenging work out but worth it! Took us about 2 1/2 hours. Highly recommend!

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.

Great trail, sad the highway now runs through the ascent from branch street. great views of the Bennington valley and Mount Anthony.

OMG- the first part is crazy with the rock steps and climbing- a good cardio!
