Bald Mountain

Bald Mountain

From Inlet, travel south on Route 28 for 6.2 miles, then turn right onto Rondaxe Road. Travel just over 0.1 mile to the trailhead parking on the left.

The trail is 2 miles to the summit, where there is a tower that provides a fine view. This hike is upper-intermediate and has some areas on the hogsback that can ice over in late fall and early spring. As one of the most hiked mountains in New York, you'll see a lot of fellow hikers on holiday weekends.

Winter overview: This hike is a favorite for those who like to snowshoe. It can be icy at times. Fantastic winter vista. 

Elevation: 2,350 feet

Distance: 1.9 miles from the Rondaxe parking area trailhead to the summit.

It can take 5 hours to complete this hike. Experienced hikers can probably do it in less time.
