Comments
Comments: Excellent first time hike of the Baldpates with fantastic views and gusty winds at the summit of East Baldpate. The mud in the col is at least 2ft deep. The wooden bridges are very helpful spanning these muddy spots. The slabs on the ascent were dry and had no issue climbing. I met only one other hiker today. Puzzle Mtn bakery was well stocked this morning 🙂
