Bernard Peak / Scout Trail

Bernard Peak / Scout Trail Professional Review and Guide

"With great viewpoints along the way, this challenging trip climbs through richly diverse conifer forest nearly all the way to the 5,150-foot-high summit of Bernard Peak. Grouse and white-tailed deer are common and often found along this route. There is also a chance of seeing a bear.

Note the yellow arrows that mark this route at many but not all junctions. A portion of this trail follows an easement through private land—please stay on the trail. This is a long hike with a total elevation gain and loss of over 3,000 feet. Be sure the entire party is up to it."
