Comments
Comments: unknown - blue blazed trail

This was a great hike with some excellent views to the west and the surrounding area. The hike up Bald Mt was relatively clear from all snow and ice except for a short section where the trail leaves the pond. The majority of the snow/slush/ice was going from Bald Mt to Speckled Mt. The trail was covered in soft slushy snow that I was able to bareboot by following someone else's postholes. I don't know if it's worth bringing snowshoes since the trail seems pretty quiet. There was a long section of uphill icy ledges that you'd want microspikes for. One of my new favorite hikes in the area.
