Baldfaces Trail

Various • 9.7 mi • 3450 ft

The Baldfaces, which rise over 3600 feet in elevation, lie along a ridge nestled between higher and more rugged White Mountain summits and a landscape of farms, lakes, and low, rolling hills. Ravaged by fire in 1903, the mountains’ open ridges provide countless vantage points from which to gaze upon this scenic corner of northern New England and marvel at its many diverse natural features. This full-day hike has significant elevation gain and can be challenging, but for those completing the circuit the rewards are great, and with many trails and potential loops available, the greatest challenge will be scheduling a return trip.
