Looking up the spur trail to Bald Mountain
After hiking Mt. Flume and Mt. Liberty, I was heading north on I-93 so that I could reverse direction and head back south. As I approached the first turn around exit, I decided to go to the next exit and do a quick hike up to Bald Mountain.
After walking across the ski area parking lot, I quickly set foot up the Bald Mountain-Artist's Bluff Path, which was really more of an old road. Soon reaching the col, I took a left onto the spur path to Bald Mountain. While the grades had been easy to moderate at this point, there were a few short, very minor scrambles necessary to get up to teh top of Bald Mountain.
The views from the top were great, ranging from the northeast to the west. Particularly on display were the Cannon and Mittersill ski areas.
I didn't really feel like doing the full loop, so I returned the same way and called it a day.
