Bald is a small mountain in the southern Adirondack Park. It's a popular place because of the great views from its barren top and the publicly accessible fire tower located there. The walk there is also just a quarter mile from the parking area.
Going in the opposite direction from the same parking area is the Vista Trail. It is very nicely marked, but interestingly enough I haven't seen much information on it online and I only met one other hiker on it despite getting there on a very nice weekend day.
