Route: Bald Knob Trail

After having done a few larger hikes in the past few days, I decided to do something a bit shorter and more local.

The Bald Knob Trail was in pretty good shape, though it seemed like there was an additional blowdown or two since my previous visit.

As usual, the views from the knob were excellent.
