Bald Mountain in Dedham, Maine

Bald Mountain is a short, yet steep, 1.2 mile round-trip hike that features nice views of the surrounding area.  The mountain had been a ski area as recently as the 1970s, and today is home to a few cell towers and a radio antenna. 

I was joined today by a good friend of mine and his son.   Midway up the trail we turned around and had a nice view.  However, by the time we reached the top fog had rolled in and visibility was limited.  Sadly, I didn't think to take any pictures on the way up when we had a view.

The snow and ice on the bottom portion of the climb had mostly melted away due to its southern exposure, although there were spots that still were icy.  The top still had ice and snow remaining.  The trail was slippery in parts due to the ice.

Here is the trail map.

There was still ice and snow at the top.

Cell towers and a radio antenna now dominate the summit.

We did have a slight view on the way back down.
