heading right towards Great Eastern was definitely the tougher route up - more loose rock and less trodden pathways. But not technically challenging. back down past South ridge was a lovely stroll

loved the view at the top of the trail. not much to see until you reach the peak. the views from the top are so worth it.

This is a beautiful hike up and down Bear Mountain! There is a few small waterfalls on the way up and the views from the top are breathtaking! There is also some great views on the way down! There is also snow still around! The best part is that it is not a difficult hike to do!

hiked the loop, 11 Nov. 2019. Awesome, snow 1 inch to 7 or so on top, plenty of prints to see in snow, bear, dear, moose. Very nice hike

Great hike, especially if you ski at Killington. Staff is very friendly. Views are great. You circle back behind Bear Mountain and summit right at Outer Limits and Devil’s Fiddle. Mostly you are walking on service roads and Ski Trails but the route and the views are awesome.

HikingNo shade

This is a ski trail you can hike during the summer. Shade is limited, and parking is in the shared driveway of some condos/cabins. View at the top is worth the trip. Caught a glimpse of a bear cub just off trail as well. It's fine if you understand going in what it is, but it is definitely not a trail catered to hiking.

Panoramic views at the time. Steep climb up and fun run down. Went in September - definitely some wet , mud spots - challenging, but rewarding

First to Review

Pretty much follows the ski run. Not much shade. Some construction going on during the summer time, getting the slopes ready for the season.
