From Old Forge, head North on Rt 28 and follow the signs for Bald Mountain hiking trail. It is a pleasant 45 minute hike that is only a marginal challenge, even for young children.

Looking South from the crest of Bald Mountain. After hiking to the crest and setting up my equipment I had to wait for almost 2 hours for the clouds to open up to this amazing view. For 3 years I made the 2 hour drive up from my home town of Syracuse NY. Both previous years within days of my planned trip a heavy rain with high winds swept through the area plunging all the glorious color onto the forest floor. This year I was gifted with this amazing day.
