A section of Bearfort Ridge reaches into Hewitt State Forest, offering hikers a challenging climb with a rewarding view. The forest is isolated and untouched, accessible only on foot. Marshes and wetlands are scattered throughout the forest with several brooks and streams crisscrossing the lower areas. Hemlock and oak are the dominant species of this relatively undisturbed forest.

Excellent trail with beautiful views.

This is a beautiful short hike. I don't know if I would call it easy. There are parts that are straight up . 700 feet in elevation in .8 miles. On the top of the ridge there are boulders to climb. However, it was a very enjoyable two and half hour hike. Follow blue to yellow. The app helped me find the cut off to yellow. Easily missed.

Quiet trail and good exercise for a half day hiking.
The view fir Greenwood lake is wonderful.
If you want to save time, start from Lakeside.

Tougher than you think. Lots of scrambling. Amazing topography! The views are terrific.
