The beauty of Bear Brook State Park is that there is something for everyone. With nearly 10,000 acres of forest, there is room for the snowshoer, cross-country skier, snowmobiler, and even the dogsledder. At times they may cross each other’s path, but for the most part the networks are separate. The loop through Bear Brook utilizes several different trails—Little Bear, Bobcat, Broken Boulder, and Pitch Pine. Tie them all together and you have quite an enjoyable bundle. Birch, pine, red oak, and hemlock trees make up much of the forest you’ll be passing through. There are also a few clearings, areas of downed trees off the trails, and “snags,” dead standing trees left for wildlife to use. Surface quality: Ungroomed, single tracked, double tracked.
