Ascent Trip Report

Bald Peak is a quick climb to outstanding views, from there the Blue Trail's descent is barely maintained but reaching to an old Charcoal Rd Tr which allowed for a tough bushwhack to Bingham Pond by taking advantage of more and less open herd paths and yards to start my way to a peak with scatterings of large erratic standing above thickets at summit, a tree stand on sub-peak surprised me along the way enough to look for any trails reaching it and basically found none.
