Black Bear Mountain Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Be aware that the first section of the trail is a multiuse trail and mountain biking is becoming more popular in the region. The trail to the summit is hiking only.

A popular destination in summer and fall, this tiny peak provides excellent views of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. It is a great choice for children and beginner hikers, but if you wish for solitude, then plan to go during the off-season, especially winter. The trail register is just inside the treeline. The trail—marked in yellow hiking, skiing, and biking disks—heads northeast through mixed hardwoods."

"A kid-friendly hike with a fun scramble up a rock chimney and a nice view of Seventh Lake from the summit. Located in the Moose River Plains Wild Forest at the north-eastern end of Fourth Lake, Black Bear Mountain is appropriately named. If you are observant, you will likely see bear tracks and scat in the clearings beside the lower trail, along with signs of deer and other wildlife. This hike is also appealing for the fun climb up the ledgy upper mountain and the view from the cliff at its summit." Read more
