Route: Bald Knob Trail
With a few hours of daylight at my disposal, I headed down to Bald Knob for a quick hike. While I started out jogging, the steep, rocky nature of the trail resulted in me changing to a normal walk about 1/3 of the way up. While the deer flies were out in the lower elevations, the summit appeared to be bug free.
The views from the Knob were quite strong throughout the Lakes Region, though the mountains to the north were in the fog.
