Comments
Comments: This little loop packs some great views from little deer hill and ledges just past the summit of deer hill. Trail is dry with a few spots of avoidable mud mostly on the connector. Easy up and down though steep in places past the Deer Hill summit. One spot for extra care, about 1/10 a mile or so past the view ledges after Deer Hill summit you see a cairn on rock outcropping - the trail heads down the around and off the rock steeply and then traverses along the edge of a drop-off - in this stretch there in one short spot where the rock on the trail is crumbling and could cause one to loose footing so just keep an eye out! Not too much traffic on there trails today - saw 6 people. Though the baldface lot is in NH, the trip does cross the state line just after the river crossing so large majority of hike is in Maine.
