Bald Bluff Trail, Amherst Community Forest

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
