Hidden between the Connecticut Valley and the Green Mountain National Forest, Bald Mountain and Townshend State Park quietly draw visitors to an unsung pocket of Vermont. Part of 856-acre Townshend State Forest, this diminutive summit and decidedly quirky trail add just the right measure of family adventure to an inviting destination. A unique summit, spacious campsites, a huge covered bridge, play areas, and a sandy beach a short way down the road guarantee all members of the family plenty of weekend fun.

This hike had very little payoff. The views from the summit were weak.
