Blog & VIDEO! Bald [Rondaxe] Mountain and Fire Tower: SUPER FUN Winter Tower Challenge Hike!

MAD FUN HIKE! Bald [a.k.a. Rondaxe] Mountain and fire tower, located in the Fulton Chain Wild Forest area of Adirondack Park in New York.

In only a mile, you will experience pretty much everything the Adirondacks can throw at you!

The best part?!?! The crazy knife-edge ridges near the summit. Only without the two-thousand-foot drops like the mountaineering videos from the Himalaya and the Alps have haaahahaa!

The OTHER best part?!?! We finally got to meet our friends over at Vermont Paddle Pups! They were coming down as we were heading up, so we stopped at this awesome overlook for a quick photo. So happy to meet our fellow bloggers and social media friends in person! Go see their trip report for even more information on this hike, and you’ll love their blog, especially if you hike and paddle with your dogs.
