    Press Release from NYS DEC:

    DEC Addresses Concerns of Overuse at Bald Mountain (AKA Rondaxe
    Fire Tower) in town of Webb, Herkimer County

    1,000 Visitors Over a Typical Summer Weekend

    The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) would
    like to remind people to practice Leave No Trace Principles when visiting Bald
    Mountain (AKA Rondaxe Fire tower) located in the town of Webb, Herkimer
    County. Leave No Trace Principles include: planning and being prepared for
    hiking; disposing of waste properly (pack it in, pack it out!); leaving rocks, plants
    and other natural objects as you find them; and respecting wildlife, flora and
    fauna.

    Bald Mountain's proximity to the communities of Old Forge, Eagle Bay and Inlet
    make this part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve very accessible to visitors and
    year-round residents alike. A typical summer weekend will pull in roughly 1,000
    visitors.

    If crowds are not your thing, please consider visiting one of DEC's other natural
    resources, for example, Vista Trail (AKA Scenic Mountain Trail). More
    information can be found on DEC's website. In an emergency or, to report
    vandalism of natural resources please call Raybrook Dispatch at: 518-891-0235.
