Bear Mountain AT and Undermountain Trails


Trail Conditions:
Parking lot at Undermountain - there was about 5 inches of fresh wet snow.

Hiked up Undermountain Trail then took the AT to top of Bear Mtn. There is more than 1 foot of snow at the Riga Junction 2000ft elevation and as much as 2 or 3 feet of snow near the summit of Bear Mountain and the areas west of the AT

Special Equipment Required:
We used snowshoes for the whole hike.. the trail is well broken out now but will be icy. I would recommend bareboot or microspikes for most of the hike.. but plan to use snowshoes at the higher elevations or on unbroken trails. Plan for crampons for the north side of Bear Mountain
