"Bald Mountain rises on a narrow neck between Mooselookmeguntic and Rangeley Lakes. From the observation tower on the summit, you can see mountains and lakes in every direction. It is a fairly easy hike to get one of the best views in the state. The trail up Bald Mountain in the Bald Mountain Public Reserved Land climbs gently through an open forest—a good place to find wildflowers and mushrooms in season in the cool, moist shade beneath the high canopy. About halfway to the summit, the trail bends to the south and begins climbing more steeply. The trail becomes rockier, often crossing slabs of bedrock, and the forest is dominated more by spruce."

Nice short hike, took the kids ages 9 and 12. A couple of rocky parts that can be slick in the rain.

Although listed as a snowshoe trail, this is a good 3 hour hike in the warmer months. The big pay-ff is the tower at the top where you can see for many many miles and many, many lakes
