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.

Trillium V5 6C  NH : Waterville Valley : ... : Yellowjacket Boulder
Trillium climbs up the central face of the Yellowjacket Boulder and tops out at the shelf at about two-thirds height.
