Summit Of Bald Mountain With The Champlain Valley In Background
Gratuitous summit shot with Vermont and the Champlain Valley in the background.
The interesting thing about Bald Mountain is it's only about 3100ft. However, the hike in starts at about 600ft, and then it descends into a few small cols. So this "little" 3100ft hill actually packs a near 3000ft elevation gain over 4 miles.
Just for shits and giggles, how much elevation does the 5000ft Algonquin gain from the Loj lot? Well, just over 3000ft. So for everyone out there who gets all pumped about the final elevation of a peak bear in mind size can be deceptive.
