amazing view at the top of the tower on Bald Mtn. Short, sometimes a little challenging hike to the top, but there are a couple different trails up if u want a more leisurely way up.

It may look 'small' in stature, but this half-day hike affords moderate or challenging routes. Either way, the summit's tower offers a gorgeous panorama of these Western Mountains. A photo-grapher's dream, and late summer blueberrying tempts one and all.

Came here during the Snowdeo for a bite to eat and to warm up. There must of been well over 200 people inside the alley and only about 20 bowling, We were surprised how quickly our food came out and the fact it was actually quite edible for the size of the crowed that was there. A bit pricey at... More

Steep hike up a small mountain with excellent views 360 degrees around.Great look at everything in the Rangeley area from Saddleback to West Kennebago mountain that once had a tower. Only tower in the area with friendly access.

Best day of the vacation. Perfect weather. Perfect fall foliage! A little challenging for little people but the view on top from the fire tower made him push for the top.

It must be an old name cause it was not very bald anymore . It is fairly thick woods all the way to the top . It is good the fire tire is there so you can get above the tree line to get a better view. Don't be fooled to thinking this an easy hike , not with the... More

Early part of trail was easy, then became more steep, with roots and rocks that were harder to navigate, especially during second half. Climbed after rainy day; this was a mistake, especially coming down. View was spectacular from fire tower, but only very good from summit. Believe this was worth doing once. Rate difficulty as moderate and not "great for... More

If you are staying near Oquossoc, the first 20-30 minutes of the Bald Mountain trail is a good morning workout, without the more challenging higher rock scramble to the top. It has a steady incline and as other reader's have mentioned, uneven footing - but that will help you work on your balance! It's a great workout *and* a hike,... More

This was a wonderful hike! A bit challenging here and there due to rocky passages... My husband and I were very glad that we had our walking sticks! The view from the top is worth the effort to get there. The tower is very solid and there is a wonderful 360 degree view. Breath-taking!

Hiking this trail requires stepping over roots, scrambling up rocks and depending upon the season, encountering mud and slippery conditions. It is really rocky at the top and requires good mobility to get up. Older kids and teens in good condition and experienced hikers will just scramble up over the rocks. Others will likely find the second half of the... More
