Father's Day Hike. Bring your teenage plus children Bearfort Mountain 7.5 miles

  • Jun 16, 2013 · 9:30 AM

 Mileage: 7.2 - Moderate to challenging. Rugged, rocky, with some decent scrambling areas. The initial part of the trail up is steep, multiple elevation changes. Even though it's not a long hike, I will rate it challenging since it would not be suitable for under 12 yrs of age.


This loop hike traverses the Bearfort Ridge, with its unusual puddingstone conglomerate rock and pitch pines growing out of bedrock, passes through a rhododendron tunnel, and comes out on the shore of Surprise Lake.



4 hours - this a good estimate if all goes right.
