A scenic 10 minute drive from our Inn, Bald Mountain Preserve is our favorite area hike. At 1280 feet, the mountain is the 5th highest peak on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Allow approx. 2 hours round trip for a leisurely hike.
After a short walk through the forest you will catch your first glimpse of mountain views and farmlands. For the most part, the remainder of the hike will traverse the rock bound mountain. Follow the blue blazes to the summit where you will find a large cairn in addition to a sign in the foreground with detailed information about the mountains topography.
