Description:


Bag two 52 with a view mountains in the White's, North and South Baldface (3,560 ft. and 3,600 ft. respectively). Both offer panoramic views of the White Mountains to the west and the Mahoosuc Mountain in Maine to the north. We'll be taking the Baldface Circle Trail from the parking area in a clockwise loop. At the junction, we'll be making a left towards South Baldface first, followed by North Baldface. We'll then hike down the Baldface Circle Trail back towards the junction and the parking area. The total hike will be 9.5 miles in a loop.
