About Baldpate Mountain
Baldpate Mountain, previously know as Kuser Mountain, was acquired by Mercer County from Trap Rock Industries in 1998. The Kuser family sold the property to Trap Rock in 1986. The park has over 12 miles of marked natural trails for hiking, mountain biking and horse back riding. There are trails for all abilities from short level loops to steep rocky trails. Mercer Park System mentions that the current design and construction plans will provide for improved access to the mountain. There are two parking lots constructed and the base of the mountain on Fiddlers Creek Road and Pleasant Valley Road. The existing driveway will also be improved to provide for limited vehicular and handicapped access to the top of the mountain. The top of the mountain will provide rest room facilities and a visitor's center.
