After summiting Mount Defiance, continued on to Bald Mountain via a mix of pipeline swath, woods road, and bushwacking. While in route from Bald Mountain to Drag Hill, stopped at the stone house ruins that I believe is also known as the Goat Farm or the German House. Bald Mountain was second of five peaks I reached during a 11.5 mile loop hike to/from Ringwood State Park - Skyland Manor area parking lot B.
This one seems really easy from the parking spot off Mountain Road, but with the recent warm weather that caused melt and re-freeze, it was challenging (left the spikes behind, thinking this would be a cinch). Encountered about a dozen ATVs and one big-wheel Jeep Wrangler, but everyone shared the road and it wasn't an issue.
