Hike Bald Mountain (Rondax Fire Tower)

Bald Mountain Trailhead

Family friendly hike with very little effort for spectacular views from Rondax Fire Tower.

The one mile trail leads through the woods and some open rock areas. About half way up, you will get some of your first views of Second, Third, and Fourth Lakes. The final few hundred feet are along the rock spine. Though there are views without climbing the tower, they are more extensive form the towers cabin.

Views are of the Fulton chain Lakes, Blue Mountain. On a clear day you can see several high peaks. This hike also makes for a beautiful winter snowshoe.

Nice

Really good for quick daytime hike. Awesome views.

Beautiful

Bald mountain is definitely a great hike! Beautiful views for the climb, and even better from the fire tower! We do this hike several times each year and always have a great time! Great place to have a picnic or to watch a sunset!

Easy

Very easy hike! Short with sweet views at the top and a fire tower! The trail is straightforward and easy with a couple of steep spots. Nothing taxing at all. I made it up and down with a friend in 20 minutes last summer.
