Ascent Trip Report

Day after Thanksgiving was clear and cool (28 degrees) so what better way to burn off some calories than go on a hike! Wanted to hike Pitcher Mountain to check it off of fire tower list but had to justify the drive and decided to combine with Bald Mountain.
After Pitcher Mountain, it was then on to Bald Mountain. Another clearly marked large parking lot, so no trail head hunting today! Took Tamposi trail up to the summit and this was mostly in the woods with little to no view. After heading down from summit on the Bald Mt. Trail we came to a number of lookouts with great views over Willard Pond! We followed the Bald Mt. Trail to the pond and then Tudor Trail along the pond edge back to the parking lot and this made for a nice loop with good views. Lots of trees were taken down by beavers, you could see teeth marks and wood shavings but we didn’t see any beavers.
