The hike up the mountain itself isn't particularly interesting, but the 360-degree views from the top of the fire tower at Bald Mountain's peak are spectacular. You'll see Mooselookmeguntic Lake, Rangeley Lake, and surrounding mountains. I would say the difficulty level of the hike is moderate. The terrain gets increasingly steep and rocky towards the top, but glimpses of the... More

Great hike, did it a while back. It starts off pretty mellow and gets a little tough towards the end. You are rewarded with a beautiful view at the top.

This is a little challenging hike but worth the views. Their is a viewing tower at the top and you can see for miles.

We went up one wet and foggy morning, hoping that the skies would clear. They never did, however the hike was exhilarating and fun, regardless. I must say, the "Mainer" difficulty assessments are rather more understated that we are used to from hiking out West. The final scrabbling up the steeper sections isn't what I might have called "moderate". Make... More

Been hiking here for forty years. There is great fire tower on the top with incredible views of both Lakes! Dog friendly. Portapotties at the bottom. Family friendly hike. Stop at Grants camps for a drink afterwards.

Nice ,quiet, fairly easy hike with million dollars views. The Rangeley Lakes Region is heaven for nature lovers. The mountains are breathtakin, a sense of peace comes through all the beauty.

Enjoyed this hike a lot. Took a fairly long time. Generally smooth incline about halfway up then changes to really rocky terrain that is fairly steep, but the lookout from the top tower is excellent.

Great local hike to small mountain with lookout tower that sits between Rangeley Lake and Mooselookmeguntic Lake. Great family activity even with smaller children.

This hike was not difficult for my wife and I, who have moderate experience with hiking. However, my niece was pretty out of breath halfway up the trail. The trail starts out slightly uphill but then changes to fairly steep inclines over rocks and tree roots. It's definitely fun to tackle a trail like this. At the top, there are... More

Easy up&down hike. It was quite a hot day so it added to the "challenge". The trail was a bit muddy, but my dogs really loved it. The observation tower on top of the mountain give a really nice view of the region.
