What is your favorite WMNF summit/trail? The Baldfaces and West Bond are some of my favorites due to their views and seclusion.
The Baldfaces are great due to their relative isolation on 113 and not being a 4K, they?re rewarding yet still challenging. Eating blueberries while enjoying the impressive views coming down Bicknell Ridge trail is great way to descend and Emerald Pool is a fun way to end the hike. West Bond is a favorite of mine for its seclusion. I love the thickly forested spur trail and experiencing the summit?s remoteness is just awe inspiring. The criteria for becoming a favorite of mine require a mix of trees /scenery, varying degrees of trail terrain/difficulty, remote trailhead access and views.
