Natural Feature
“A 2.3 mile hike. The Bald Mountain Trail is within the Bald Mountain Public Reserved Land located between the historic Rangeley and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes. It is only a mile from the trailhead to the summit. Hikers can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding Rangeley, Cupsuptic and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes as well as Maine's Saddleback Mountain, Elephant Mountain, the Height of Land, and New Hampshire's Mount Washington in the White Mountains. This trail is especially popular in the fall when the autumn colors are in full swing and moose and deer are commonly seen crossing the forested slopes. Although Bald Mountain's stature is less imposing than some of its majestic neighbors, Bald Mountain still offers a challenging and rewarding hike for the outdoor enthusiast. The trail starts off easy and gradually increases in difficulty as you reach the top. The lower segments of the trail pass through mature northern hardwood trees such as sugar maple and white birch. The summit area’s forest is dominated by scrubby red spruce. On the bare granite summit, a picnic table provides a great place for a meal and an observation tower offers spectacular views for hikers. ”
