Good hike, especially if you're into borders and tri-points like me. However, I'd skip the last two thirds (counterclockwise) of the mapped hike and instead do an out-and-back with Brace Mountain. (Those last two thirds are just an easy downhill slog through the woods.)

Started this hike at Under Mountain Trailhead on Route 41. Took Undermountain trail to the Appalachian Trail and hike to summit of Bear Mt. From there hiked to Round Mt and then over to Mt. Frissel. The weather was amazing and views were spectacular, especially with the foliage. 9.6 miles total.

Drove past trailhead since it was not marked. Thick vegetation at beginning, and spooked a large deer. Rattlesnake on rocks of roundtop. Steep rocky scramble, but short distance. Plenty of good views along the way, just not from the summit. Pretty, secluded, and quiet hike.
