Bald Mountain Recreation Area is a 4,692-acre state park unit located south and east of the community of Lake Orion. The North and South Units east of M-24 are the rugged areas of the park with a terrain of both open fields and forests of hardwoods and conifers. There are 17 lakes here along with two trout streams and a topography that offers some interesting opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers and cross country skiers. Bald Mountain has a total of 15 miles east of M-24. The park’s best hiking is found in the North Unit, where there are 8 miles of trail on both sides of Harmon Road, north of Stoney Creek Road. The White Loop is a 2.1-mile walk past several small lakes west of Harmon Road. Branching off it is the Blue Loop and when combined they create a 3.6-mile walk. East of Harmon Road and linked to the White Loop is the Graham Lakes Trail, also known as the Orange Loop, a 3.6-mile hike around six lakes. There are several parking lots for trail users with the main one for the White Loop at the junction of Harmon and Predmore roads and another for the Orange Loop at the corner of Harmon and Miller Roads. This map developed by MichiganTrailMaps.com covers the White/Blue Loops and features 10-foot contour lines, mileage flags for a recommended route and all spurs.
