Bald Mountain is a big tourist type hiking attraction, boasting a very easy hiking trail to the top and a fire tower. More importantly is it's hidden rock climbing, with faces and slabs reaching 200' from the base all the way to the summit. Very easy 10 or 15 minute approach. Approximately 20 or so known routes according to Adirondack Rock.
From Old Forge: Drive north on Route 28, approximately 3 miles from the Visitor Info Center you will pass Hollywood Road on the right. Immediately after that is a dirt pullout on the right for parking. Walk across the street to the snowmobile trail, take the left fork up the hill past the sign that says "Danger, Curves" etc. Turn right off the trail at the posted signs onto a small foot trail. Follow the posted signs and the trail to a boulder scramble up to the foot of the leftmost route at Bald Mt.
