Pano photo of Lake Winnipesaukee from Bald Knob Bald Knob (1,801 ft) Trails: Turtleback Mtn & Bald Knob Mileage: approx 6.5 miles Difficulty: Easy to Moderate What a great day for a hike! Didn't realize there was another trail to Bald Knob until I met Larry DeGeorge at the trailhead. He said there is another trailhead along route 171. It's unmarked and on private property, but hikers are allowed to use it. Next time I'll try that way! The trails were muddy and slushy, especially on the hike down. I didn't bring snowshoes, as I didn't think I needed them. I did pack microspikes but didn't need those as well. Enjoy some photos taken along my hike.

We also did a couple of laps on the Hanging By A Moment. And finally, in the late afternoon, I led the Leprechaun's Lement Slab. I led the center since I had only led the left hand side of the slab. The ice on the first half of the route was really still good. But by that t
