Trail blazers are worn off trees and could use a repaint.

Map not accurate to actual trail. Not all trails clearly marked. Really muddy. Check actual bear mountain map for reference.

Did the red trail loop, but veered off to orange so I could get to the lake. Definitely steep down to the lakefront, and slippery with all the leaves, but a beautiful view that’s worth it. Definitely in need of fresh blazes. I would say this is on the easy side of moderate.

Great to see Candlewood empty with no boaters. I saw a 6 point buck right off the trail. It's in DIRE need of fresh blazes

Not a bad place first time going today and for a park reservation it's on the top list with family and kids or to get outside. I liked how they even had fitness things brand new. I just the red trail but you can see candle wood lake no view with the trees. plenty of other trails as well mostly short and easy nothing challenging or hard by any means. for a short hike and park its worth going if your local otherwise No or to bring dogs, kids too

Nice hike with kids, easy trails with a mixture of scenery. Good for getting outdoors, however underwhelming overall.

Beautiful hike but not clearly marked. We eventually made it down to Candlewood Lake! Very steep but worth it. Easy for the kids and dogs too.

A nice walk with a steep walk down to the lake. Views mostly obstructed by trees, but still good for hiking and running.

great park with a variety of trails to mix and match. It does get very muddy when it's wet. Take the orange trail straight down to the lake if you have a dog that likes to swim. Nice people and a good place to let your dog off leash.
