great for training, kids, or just a fun moderate hike with some nice views. went in mid-winter to catch the sun rise and didnt see a single other person. the summit is semi exposed and in eary february was windy and bitterly cold.
Did this loop again today, 1-29-17. Started on Under mountain Road, hiked up the front side, slid down the backside on my backside, a nice snow pack for it. Will definitely be back another day for another adventure.
too bad the stone tower has been so vandalized
Great hike, will definitely do it again. Bring hiking boots, the combination of snow and rock can be treacherous.
fun. eastern part of loop is tough.
We will definitely do this trail again. Moderate terrain.
Bring your hiking boots.
Excellent and somewhat challenging loop hike. Views were beautiful. The first 1/4 mile of descent was difficult mostly due to wet leaves and some snow on the rock scrambles. Total loop took a little less than 4 hours.
Weather was perfect. Started at Undermountain trailhead on route 41. Hiked to Bear mountain via Appalachain Trail, then Round Mountain, then over to Mount Frissel. A 9.6 mile hike. Great views spectacular foilage. I absolutely loved this hike. Took just over 6 hours
Followed the paradise trail all around the back side of the mountain, it was long but nice and not crowded to go this way. We came up the back side which was tough and rocky but fun. Came down under mountain trail which was a nice way to end the trail.
