Route: Ski Lodge Trail, Bald Rock Mountain Trail

Ski Lodge Trail was basically a gated dirt road - smooth sailing.

Bald Rock Mountain Trail was basically an old road - a few rooty areas, as well as some rock stairs, but pretty gradual.

Superb ocean views from the summit ledge. Map Adventures map suggested there were two views from the top, but I didn't find the one that appears to be toward the west.
