Featured Hike: Bayle Mountain

Length: Moderate Steepness:
Difficult Navigation: Easy
Views: Excellent
Crowds: Minimal

Looking for a short hike with great views? You need to check out Bayle Mountain tucked away in the Ossipee Mountains. Coming in at an elevation of 1853 feet. its rocky peak gives you a almost 360 degree view, including great views of Ossipee lake and Mount Washington. From Trail head to the summit is about a 20 min hike. The trail is well marked once you find the trailhead off a snowmobile trail.

The only trail that leads to the summit of Bayle Mountain is a trail unofficially known as the Bayle Mountain Trail, which can be accessed via the snowmobile trail that crosses Marble Road (decent dirt road) and passes near Bayle Mountain Road (rough).

Location of the Trail Head:

From Route 16 South in West Ossipee, take a right onto Pine Hill Road. At the end of Pine Hill Road, take a right onto Ossipee Mountain Road. Shortly after passing Connor Pond, bear right onto Marble Road. Just before a narrow wooden bridge, the snowmobile trail enters on the right (and then leaves on the left after the bridge), marked slightly off the road with an orange gate. Park here without blocking the roads or trails, and head up the snowmobile trail on the right. The trailhead will be about 10-20 minutes up this snowmobile trail, to the left at a height of land on a curve in the road, marked with a cairn.
