Bear Den Mountain Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"It is a moderate, almost easy, walk to the open crestline of Bear Den Mountain for a superb 360° view. Like Calf Mountain to the north, Bear Den Mountain offers a great seat from which to watch the thousands of hawks that glide along the Blue Ridge Mountains during the annual fall migration.
You don’t have to hike anywhere to enjoy the views from the open meadows of Beagle Gap, which look eastward into the folded recesses of Tuckedaway Branch and Greenwood Hollow. To begin the hike, cross Skyline Drive and follow the A.T. south, snacking on wild strawberries in June and turning around every once in a while to look onto the fields of Calf Mountain to the north."
