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.

This was a great first hike for our 28 month old and almost 4 year old girls. We would rate this challenging for that reason and moderate if it was only the two of us. The view is amazing and worth the trip. We followed up with sandwiches and ice cream at Moosely Bagels in Rangeley. Great day.

My husband and I enjoyed this moderate challenge reaching the summit. It was great to see many people of all ages and abilities out enjoying the day and being rewarded with such a spectacular view at the top from the fire tower. Picnic at the top was refreshing. Wear your hiking boots as the rocks were slippery and the trail... More

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.
