Mid week hike Bearfort Mountain 7.5 miles

  • Aug 14, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

Overview

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.
