Bald Mountain State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"For a long hike with lots of trees and hills, there are few spots in southeast Michigan that can beat the North Unit trails at Bald Mountain in Lake Orion. The two loops, split by Harmon Road, take in a half dozen lakes and ponds and skirt some wetlands (but not too close).

For an easier hike, just tackle one of the loops—both start from the same parking area. This trail passes through state land open to hunting. Wear appropriate bright clothing during hunting season."
