Route: Access road

Access road is pretty much a top to bottom ledge slab...pretty neat actually. Would not be too fun in black ice or wet conditions. Lots of views on the way up, as well as directional views from near the towered summit.

Directions to trailhead: From US 1A in East Holden, take Upper Dedham Road south, then eventually bear left onto Bald Mountain Road. At a junction with Johnson Road, Bald Mountain Road turns right. Instead, continue straight on Johnson Road. The Bald Mountain access road will be on the left shortly thereafter, with parking on a large ledge.
