  • An awesome place to hike not too far from NYC! We came here on a snowy day and the trails were still well maintained and there was just the right number of people on the mountain!

  • Amazing place to visit & enjoy full day with family....! It's better to carry food. Taking breakfast in the morning start climbing & reach top of the mountain. Very nice view all the way. After coming down select nice place for lunch. Then can do boating in your own....!
  • very first time hiking with my sister and niece, we decide to do bald mountain. which was pretty steep and intense the further you go. It was easy to find our way out without a map due to the foot trail and the blue markings on the tree. Very quiet and tranquil. I highly recommend bug spray and long pants.
