Baldpate Mountain

Baldpate Mountain

Scramble up a boulderfall and through some enchanting passageways and you’ll see all the way to Philadelphia – telescope provided!

The ascent is not easy, but the 4-year-old in our party kept pace. I recommend eating your sandwich shortly after the rock scramble on the terrace of the fairytalesque stone cottage with your legs dangling over the pond – but save your dessert for the top of the hill with vast views all the way to Philadelphia, theoretically.

(Don’t say I didn’t tell you about the bear warnings.)

DIRECTIONS

AS A WINE….

An Oregon Pinot Noir, abundantly aromatic with strawberry, wild mint and fresh cedar notes.
