Nice, peaceful trail with the reward of chilling by the reservoir at the end. The trail is pretty flat - the main challenge is fording all the little streams. It can be muddy in spots.

Well maintained trail, perfect for walking with kids and dogs. Picnic areas abound, perfect for a snack before or after your walk. Kona gives this 4 out of 4 paws.

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.
