We took our 3 month to the summit and did the 6 mile loop. Went during the week and only ran in to one other person. Great hike!

Bear Mountain was our last piece of the A.T. in CT. hubby was nursing a foot injury so we went North-South, summitting Bear Mtn. early and had a great hike with lots of great views.

Very pleasant and enjoyable hike. Personally I highly recommend taking the Paradise Lane trail North and approaching Bear Mountain from the north side on the back end of the loop. There is an excellent rock scramble at this point which leads to a monument and a nice panoramic view to the east. Recommend hiking early almost nobody at the top.

very good hiking trail. north side is much teepee and the south side is more of an easy way down...south side does take longer though.

Loved this loop today! Parking lot was easy to find for the Undermountain Trail. Took the Undermountain to the AT and headed north to summit. Great trail maintenance made for an easy ascent. The AT north down was steep and rocky, but not too difficult. Took the Paradise Lane Trail back to Undermountain and back to parking lot. Clocked just under 7 miles in three hours. Fantastic moderate hike with lots of interesting trail. Views at the summit were good.
