On the hike to Bald Rock Mountain, the end more than justifies the means. Although the initial mile or so along the gravel road may become monotonous for the little guys, the foot trail engages hikers on its final 0.5-mile climb to the summit with splendid views and— TA-DAH!—a rustic shelter for overnight camping. Because the climb to the mountaintop is not too arduous, this makes a perfect first campout for younger kids. Follow the rugged Multi-Use Trail through mixed woods. It may take some effort to maintain the kids’ enthusiasm along this lengthy and rather uneventful stretch of road.
