At 1,280 feet, Bald Mountain is the fifth highest peak on the eastern seaboard and offers excellent views of Western Penobscot Bay and surrounding coastal mountains. Bald Mountain is also home to one of the midcoast’s largest rare subalpine natural communities. An interpretive sign near the summit helps describe this habitat and identifies some of the more unusual alpine plants found on the mountaintop.

From US-1 in Camden, take John Street 0.8 miles to Hosmer Pond Road (which becomes Barnestown Road after the Camden Snow Bowl). Follow 3.5 miles to the preserve parking lot on the left, just past Gillette Road.
This trailhead serves as a starting point for the Bald Mountain Trail, and the Georges Highland Path, which crosses Barnestown Road and continues up Ragged Mountain.
Success! A new password has been emailed to you.
Note: At the parking lot, it isn't obvious that you are at the Bald Mountain Trail as it is the trailhead for multiple trails. From the parking lot, you will follow the trail to cross the road, and then it is well marked from there.
