Tim_KroezeA Good Season-Starter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2015
I've climbed this a few times, and each time is fun. The views are nice, and it is pretty evenly paced. It's a good way to start the season, or to take people who aren't regular hikers. If you make it in early June, the trail is covered in mountain laurel.

Seventy five minutes to the top from the Undermountain TH on Route 41. Sixty two minutes down. No views in the fog but that was a serious summit cairn.

This is barely a mountain, but it's still a nice hike. I much prefer Lantern Hill - before the casino.

weathergirl42Relaxing Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2008


An easy hike in great weather with beautiful views. The summit was super crowded! I hiked this as part of my highpointing goal and wanted to make sure that I got both this and Frissell, just in case. Then again, it's not as if I need an excuse to hike!

mstenderUnder Mountain/Paradise Loop  Sucess!


I did Bear already 3 times since I molved to CT from CA. Great hike. Nice views on top of the rock pile. The first time on Bear Mountain, we actually saw a bear on our way back. That was really cool. I had never seen a bear in 6 years of living and hiking on the West Coast (CA, WA). I want to go back and do it in Winter, must be really nice too.

Climbed via the Appalachian Trail from the Mount Washington Road. A nice short hike along the Appalachian Trail to Connecticut's highest mountain (though not the highest point). Good views of the Litchfield Hills from the summit rock pile.
