Baldpate Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Baldpate Mountain is the true start of the Mahoosuc Range heading east, if you plan to make a longer trek. At the top, you’ll be treated to sweeping views of the Mahoosuc Range to the north and east. It is a tough hike, though, especially the last hour."

I hiked this one with my friend "Bird". We bushwhacked from a logging road on Northern side and connected up with the AT and headed west to summit. It was very icy at the exposed summit and the sign was down and covered with ice. The weather can be pretty wicked up there in the winter since it is a bald summit (thus the name). All the cairns and blazes were covered by snow and ice so we had to navigate by compass, heading west, until we found the AT again. Once down to the road we hitch hiked back to our car to the North. We ended up hiking 12 miles, 4 being a bushwhack in unbroken snow. We were very hungry in the end! Beautiful hike though, lovely trails & views! Best, Kasey Marsters foxtrickadventures.com
