Always a favorite hike for me to bring the kids on and introduce them to nature. Bring some treats incase you happen to run into some thru hikers doing the whole AT

Did the loop--I recommend hitting paradise trail 1st (beautiful wooded trail) and ascend Bear Mt from the north-steep scramble-going up better than down. Added bonus is when descending south side there are great views. Very crowded on top. Overall trail is in great shape and with the exception of steep north side the grade is mild to moderate.

Fantastic hike.

Fun day hike that I did with my lab. A few rock faces that you need to scramble, but my dog was just fine. The loop took us 5 hours total but we probably took 1.5 hours worth of breaks (the top has amazing views plus we went off to the ravine on the way down so the dogs could play in the water).

Did this back in January with a few friends. Started at 430 in the morning and was at the summit before 7 to see the sunrise. A little slippery on the ice even with spikes but still manageable. Great hike year round with good views off towards Norfolk and Twin Lakes.

north side of the summit is very steep
