There are two separate camping areas at Lily Bay and a large number of sites. On the first business day in January, when the reservation office opens for the season, the world-class lakeside sites start filling up—so make plans early if you want to secure one. There are several secluded sites in the Dunn Point Moosehead Lake. The sense of solitude at sites 200 and 201 is priceless. These are moderately spacious and very isolated walk-in tent sites. Each requires a short (20 to 30 feet) hike to the site. They are set on a bluff overlooking the lake, and the views are positively epic. Farther along this same bluff, site 202 is less exposed to the views and the breeze, but still offers sliver views of the lake vista and the hills beyond, through the woods. Site 203 is the last site in this cluster on the bluff. It’s very spacious, and the breezes and views filter through a wall of conifers.

My wife and I hiked Bald Mountain in Weld Maine. Finding the trail head was a challenge. It took use about 2 hours to find it. The best way to locate it is to start at the beginning of Rte 156 in Wilton, Maine. Head West on Rte 156 for exactly 7.9 miles. Stop and look off the road to your left. You will find the trail head. There are no signs, however when we hiked the trail there was a paper sign stapled to a tree. You will have to cross a brook to start the trail. We climbed the trail in drizzly weather. It can be quite slippery on the ledges. The trail was fairly moderate and a little more of a challenge in some areas. Overall a great hike. It took us a little over an hour to ascend, and about 45 minutes to descend. Mainly because it was wet. The views are terrific and this hike is well worth locating it.
