Hiked the FireWardens trail. Easy first mile or so then the terrain gets rocky. Still easy in hiker language. 2.5 miles trailhead to summit. Took 2hr 20 min round trip with an inexperienced friend.

I hiked the bald peak trail both ways. It was a gorgeous hike. A bit challenging but not too bad. Make sure you stop off at needles pt. It's a little cave mossy waterfall and definitely worth the slight detour.

Great! Certainly an incline most of the way. The view was worth it. I'd say it's a little more challenging than a beginner but it's worth trying out! I would hike it again.

Definitely challenging for a beginner! Steady incline the whole way up. Absolutely worth it for the incredible view. Only saw one other person the whole time! (Tuesday in spring)

Nice trail to hike. First mile relatively easy. Second mile to summit is rocky, hilly and steep. Lots of opportunities to roll your ankle..especially on icy rocks hidden under fallen leaves. Beautiful views from the summit!

First ever mountain hike.Stayed at pleasant mountain camping area and did it early afternoon. Many people on the ledges trail. Steady climb to the top and shady for the first half. Awesome views and not very difficult. Would love to explore the other trails next time I'm in maine!

Moderately difficult trail particularly on the way down. There are beautiful views every fifteen minutes. A great place to see Hawks. Definitely not for the unprepared hiker.

Ledges trail is a great trail we do every year while we're in Maine. It starts out easy and gradually gets more difficult. Great views about 2/3rds the way up from the Ledges and the summit has great views as well. This time we hiked on a cloudy afternoon and ended up getting poured on. We had had three kids with us and it was warm, so the rain didn't send us back down, but it got very very wet. Great hike though and earlier in the year the hike can yield large quantities of blueberries if you're patient enough to pick the tiny, tart mountain berries.

Ledges Trail can be tough for some, wasn't a good choice to do for my first hike of the season back in May, but the summit is worth the effort. The worst part is the final stretch after you reach the first viewpoint. You can climb up the ladder at the fire tower on top, but it's not for the faint of heart!

Stunning views at the outlook and summit; got some amazing photos! Did this as my first winter hike immediately after fresh snow, which made it a bit more difficult than normal. We were one of maybe two or three people on the trail that day.

Hiked the Ledges trail to the summit a few times. In the winter this relatively steep trail gets pretty icy so be prepared. Overall a moderately challenging hike in the winter and summer with very rewarding views along the way.

Hiked the Ledges trail to the main peak on 5/2/15. I found this to be more enjoyable than other trails on this mountain as it offers amazing views on the way up. Great ledges to stop and have a snack or just to take a break and enjoy the view. Took me roughly 2 hours and 20 minutes including a 15 minute break at the main peak. Just 50 minutes or so from Portland!

We were so happy we got up and went hiking this morning and this was the one we chose !!! It was random and it was totally perfect !! Very steady incline that could feel very steep to beginners. It was slippery due to wet leaves, pine needles and ice but very clear cut path and well marked ! We ran into a few hikers and their furry campions but it was a very quiet and peaceful hike. It's a picture stopper for sure from start to finish.
