Bald Mountain is the highest mountain in the New Jersey Ramapos and Bergen County, but it does not offer any summit views.
There are no marked trails to the top but there is an access road for the summit's radio tower. Just below the summit there is a cluster of ruins that appears to be a popular spot for local revelry.
The climb up Bald Mountain, like the climbs up the other Ramapo High Peaks, requires over 800' of vertical gain when begun from one of the Ramapo River trailheads. The most interesting climb up Bald Mountain is via the valley of the Stag Hill Brook. Though Bald Mountain itself doesn't offer views, there are many ledges and summits in the Ramapos which do.
The photograph above was taken from the viewpoint on Ilgenstein Rock.
Hiked in from ramapo trailhead, took the wrong turn (fall activities include where's the trail for 100$), so decided to climb matty price hill, and wow what a veiw that one has, maybe the best of the day. The VP included most of the 1k peaks in the ramapos and basicly all the ramapo. Followed the marsh trail to the college between rocky and drag and Bushwack edwards the Ridge to rocky, veiws of the city are found near the top. Quickly climbed down to bear swap and climbed ilgenstein hill for the other realy good veiws of the day and followed the Ridge over to Halifax trail (losing the trail a lot do to leaves). Hit the road that goes to the pipeline and tower on the side of drag and blindly (sun angle) climbed to the top of drag, decent veiws. The climb down drag hurt a lot (foot injury and loose rock). All in all a great day.
