We've been going every summer since 2003. This hike is moderate and can be a morning or afternoon activity; take water. Some sections you need to be more aware of your footing but it's still a great family hike (with older kids 12+). Going up we recount the history of the Railroad tracks (now gone), the logging, the fly fishing... More

Although some hiking summaries call this hike 'easy', I would definitely classify is as moderate. We have been to the top twice; once with our two dogs and once carrying our toddler in our hiking pack. It's challenging at times and if you have bad knees, I would avoid it. The rocks can be slippery especially after it rains. The... More

Excellent dinner and atmosphere. We had the short ribs which were delicious. Menu had good variety. Maple Ginger Creme Brûlée was wonderful. Loved the dining room and views. Very friendly staff which was so refreshing.

We went in the morning! Pleasant trail to go hiking just adults or with children. Intermediate level. Reaching the top is worth all the hard work!

Diverse selection of quality food at value for money prices served by friendly, enthusiastic staff with the owner leading from the front. Much more than the usual American 'something in a bun'. Never stayed at Bald Mountain but if the restaurant reflects the rest of the establishment, which I'm sure it must, then it will be excellent.

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!
