  • Wonderful hiking trail. Easy parking right on Barnestown road. The trail is not too difficult and has wonderful views at many points. The view from the top is well worth it and there are several great spots to have a picnic.
  • I have been hiking Bald Mountain since 1982. The preservation of this precious summit is a blessing, as can be seen by looking around at the the damage done to the surrounding ones, including the legendary Hatchet Mountain in Hope. Hopefully no one else will build fires up there either, the damage to the summit stone will endure for centuries. It is a sacred place with a nearly forgotten history, and one that rewards quiet contemplation and listening. From the summit it is possible on a clear day to see Mount Washington in New Hampshire! There are few other places that allow for such a view, and much of the coast of Maine and many islands are clearly visible. It is also a spectacular place to view events such as lunar eclipses. I will be forever grateful for the preservation of this extremely special mountain. Oh, Ragged Mountain is cool too I suppose.
