This short and rewarding hike climbs to the ledge top of Mount Tire'm with excellent views to the southeast over Bear Pond, Keoka and Long Lakes, and Pleasant Mountain. This hiking trail starts from an unmarked trailhead but is well-defined and easy to spot from Plummer Hill Road. The trail climbs steeply for 0.5 miles before reaching a rock ledge lookout over Keoka Lake. From here, the trail ascends more moderately for 0.1 miles and finally reaches the granite ledges of the summit. Despite trees, there are fantastic views that open up from the east to the south. A large glacial erratic, known as 'The Bear Cave' lies hidden within the trees behind the summit. A deep cleft runs through the boulder and there are small caves to explore.

Great short hike. Steep in areas but I took 4 kids with and we all did fine, round trip about an hour or so. Great Views.

The path is well-camouflaged from the road. We parked in the church lot and walked up. Brought poles and was glad, as there were a lot of wet leaves and tree roots and rocks that were slippery in spots. The path is steep, but short, and the views worth it. To make up for the short hike we also hiked up Hawk Mountain, only a few minutes away.

it was a very quick hike than what im normal used to but it was perfect for a really hot day with 2 kids. its got a pretty good view and my kids had a great time climbing on the giant rocks and finding the wooden bear. the first part of the trail is kinda steep so use caution but its a good trail with a decent view overall.

Great hike! We took our three year old and one year old ( in backpack) and she was able to complete the hike with a few breaks as the incline is steep in a few spots. The summit was fun with a cool cave and blueberry picking! Would recommend going on a dry day with kids as it could be slippery when wet on steep rocks.

Great little hike. Fresh picked blueberry snacks at the top if you like wild fruit. Cool cave just past the bluff and random wood carvings near the summit. Very fun hike.

This trail is not easy to find as it is unmarked. I was able to find it only by seeing previous hikers on the snow. Best way to find it is to walk up from the church and look for the two granite posts on the right. The trail enters the woods across the road. Easy to follow even though not marked in any way. It is a good climb with great views of the area from the top. The trail also loops at the top so a awesome boulders that form interest caves to explore.
