Baldface Loop

Trip dates: Saturday, August 18, 2018 12:00 AM

Join the AMC for a hike described by the White Mountain Guide as "one of the most attractive trips in the White Mountains." This 9.6 mile loop is strenuous with climbs on open ledges, but with a big view pay-off as we cross the ridge between the South and North peaks of Baldface Mountain. Extra added fun for the strong at heart: a swim at Emerald Pool at the end of the day! This is a difficult hike requiring steep scrambles and challenging descents. This is not a hike for beginners and recent experience on difficult White Mountain treks and comfort on exposed terrain required to participate. Due to steep and slippery ledges on this route, rain on hike day or a soaking rain 24 hours prior to hike day will cancel.
