My younger son and I hiked the Bald Bluff Trail in the Amherst Community Forest today. The well-marked trail, a little over 2 miles in length, travels though a heavily wooded forest until reaching an overlook area. It then travels along a ridge on the side of the mountain until reaching a second overlook. From there it travels over the summit and then down.
It was a beautiful September day, and we had the trail entirely to ourselves (other than a snake and a very large spider). Here is a map of our hike. For an official state brochure of the forest, visit http://mainegov.informe.org/dacf/parksearch/PropertyGuides/PDF_GUIDE/amherstguide.pdf.
