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.
