Loved this hike. However part of the trail is closed on this particular loop due to Covid19 (they want to keep hikers away from the main camp sites). If you descend and plan to take the bog trail back to the Appalachian trail/under mountain trail you will be disappointed as you will need to re-ascend bear mountain to return from where you started. Its Definitely a little buggy in the flat areas, but I didn’t get bit by any mosquitos so mostly harmless bugs. Beautiful hike that is part of the AT. Would recommend- I feel this way about most Berkshire hikes.
