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.

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.
