...and a hike to the top of Bald Rock Mountain. The 3.2 mile trail around Fairfield Lake is one of the easiest and most accessible. The hike to the top of Bald Rock is a bit of a different story, but worth the effort....
Fairfield Lake Trail This trail is open from Labor Day through the winter and closes on Memorial Day. Camp Merrie Woode girls camp closes the western end of the trail for the safety of the campers. Directions: Park at the Sapphire Valley Boat and Beach facilities and depending on your preference, go right or left! That's it. The trial is easy to follow and offers great views of Bald Rock Mountain.
