Head west past the yellow gate off of Bald Mountain Road to take the gravel road up to the summit. During late summer, you can take advantage of trail-side blueberries for a nice mid-run snack. Even if you miss the berries, the views are huge!
The descent from the summit starts steeply before levelling out and then dropping toward Baldwin Brook. After the crossing, the trail completes a 0.6-mile climb to the Alter Ego Access Trail
