Relatively short hike that turns steep & rocky about half way up the mountain. Beautiful 360 degree views from the open tower. Two picnic tables below the tower. No views unless you climb the tower.

Pretty rocky and watch out for roots. View from fire station worth it ... Lakes and mountains. I hiked alone and felt confident. Nice to meet up with an area hiker who was very knowledgeable. Wear hiking boots! Took about 2 hours. Enjoy scrambling like a mountain goat!

This is a nice trail that is manageable for anyone in good condition. The last third becomes steeper necessitating larger steps up a rocky path. It's challenging enough to be fun, but easy enough to be accessible for most. We met several older, physically fit couples on the trail. The tower on the top gives a great view of the... More

You will enjoy the ride here along with all the views along the way. Worth the trip. Check out all other Views while in Rangeley also.

The climb starts off easy for the first half...then it gets steeper and more challenging as you get closer to the top. Not a climb for those not in decent shape, or physically challenged. But...the views from the top are amazing! Picnic tables for eating and. A fire tower to top of the majestic views of Lake Rangeley and the... More

3 teens , 9 year old and wife and I loved this spot, challenging enough half way up and great fire tower views in top. Maybe 2.5 hour hike total.

This is a relaxing family climb...be sure to do the fire tower at the top!!! The 360 view of lakes and forested hills in the fall is breath taking

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
