Looking up the Bald Knob Trail
Route: Bald Knob Trail
Getting out of work a little bit late, I decided to stay somewhat local and do a shorter hike. Wanting lake views, I originally considered Red Hill, but soon turned onto 171 and headed to the Bald Knob Trail.
Other than the traditionally wet lowpoint of the trail, the Bald Knob Trail was fairly dry. Though there were a few blowdowns, I was able to clean up a few. Hiking in new shoes, I felt like I was walking like Herman Munster.
The views from the top were tremendous - the Lake Winnipesaukee had a great blue glow. After spending awhile enjoying the scenery, I headed down.
Another nice Bald Knob hike.
