Description 

Bald Knob is a peak that forms the southern end of Acteon Ridge in the Waterville Valley Area. Unlike most of the peaks nearby, there is no trail to the summit of Bald Knob. Because of this, the hike to Bald Knob has become a relatively popular bushwhack (is there such a thing?) for experienced hikers in the area.


Getting There 

You can't get there from here!

Seriously, though, there is no trail to the summit of Bald Knob. Most people bushwhack in from the south.
