Once a hidden gem, Baldface Mountain boasts roaring cascades, stunning vistas, and wildlife-filled forests. The mountain rises above 3,600 feet and while not as high as neighboring peaks, it is more challenging than many hikes in the Whites.
Hike: Complete a 9.8-mile circuit by following the Baldface Circle Trail in a clockwise direction. Consider extending the hike slightly by exploring Chandler Gorge, Bicknell Ridge, Eagle Cascade, and Emerald Pool.
Trailhead: Located on Route 113 in Chatham 17.4 miles north of Fryeburg, Maine. www.fs.fed.us
