Hike Bald Mountain in Rangeley

2.3 Miles Round Trip - 931 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Bald Mountain Road - Search Nearby - Added by Danielle Tourigny

2.3miles ROUND TRIP and you get 360 degree views of the gorgeous Rangeley lakes!

The trail itself has a gradual incline over the course of the 1.15 miles to get to the top. There are a few steeper sections near the top, but completely manageable even for a beginner. There is another trailhead off of route 4, which would lead to a longer hike, around 4 miles. When coming from Bald Mountain Rd, the intersection with the trail on route 4 is the only intersection you will come across. 

Once you reach the top, there is a fire tower to climb for ideal 360 degree views of the surrounding area. The suMMit is nice and sunny, so you can hang out there for a while.

This trail is definitely suitable for beginners, especially if you want to give winter hiking a try for the first time. To give perspective, I did this hike for the first time when I was 3yo, which my family loves to brag about. 

If you are doing it in winter, I highly recommend sledding down for optimal fun :)
