Sages Ravine and Bear Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This journey takes you into a charming chasm—a veritable mile of delights. Contrasting with that is a short but tough climb to Connecticut’s loftiest perch, offering sublime views.
From the parking area, walk around the metal gate on wide, grassy Undermountain Trail. Showy mountain laurel (the Connecticut state flower) is profligate to the right, while dense ferns—tall interrupted fern and shorter New York and hay-scented ferns—populate a glade on the left. At the trail fork, stay left to cross a feeder stream on stones. The right fork leads to the AMC’s Northwest Camp, wonderfully situated on a rise under hemlocks."
