Baldface Loop Professional Review and Guide
"A long, spectacular traverse across an open subalpine ridge, then a dramatic descent down the bald face of the southern of two mountains. North Baldface (3,591 feet) and South Baldface (3,569 feet) may not be 4,000-footers, but they sure hike like two of them, perhaps because they are both bald peaks with
an exposed ridge between them. The Baldfaces were laid bare by fire in 1903, and once bare, the thin soil eroded quickly away.
Though technically considered subalpine because of its elevation, the ridge feels like any of the higher exposed ridges in the White Mountains when you walk it. This is a challenging hike due to the vertical gain and distance, but it will be one of your favorites after the long treeless traverse and the dramatic drop down the bald face for which these mountains are named."
