Bear Mountain Hike
Group Hiking opportunity
- Cranberry Lake, NY
Bear Mountain is one of the most popular hikes in the Cranberry Lake area and the Northwestern Adirondacks, especially since the trailhead is located within the popular Cranberry Lake State Campground. It is a moderate hike with some switchbacks and the beginning is more aerobic than the rest of the hike. There are no views from its 2177 foot summit, however the view from a rocky outcrop offers a spectacular view of part of Cranberry Lake and the Five Ponds Wilderness. The hike described below is a 3.6 mile loop hike with an elevation gain of 677 feet to the summit and an overall elevation gain of 742 feet. There is a large, paved parking area across from campsite 28 at Cranberry Lake State Campground. There is a DEC sign, a picnic table and a kiosk as well as a trail register. The elevation at the start of the trail is 1500 feet. Leave Massena from Massena Yoga Studio at 9 am. Please sign up ahead so that we know how many people to expect and that others are going. I will no longer hike alone so if nobody signs up ahead I will cancel 24 hours beforehand. Happy to carpool. I can seat 3 passengers comfortably. Pack a lunch (please prepare to carry in carry out all trash and food items) as we should reach a nice spot to stop for lunch on the hike at 11:30-12. Suggested footwear: hiking boots Don’t forget bug spray, sunscreen, water, Epi-pen or other meds if needed. There is a small park entrance fee for each car that enters the park.
