Meet at Germonds Church at 8am for the drive to Bear Mountain parking lot, PIP North to the Bear Mountain Circle, onto 9W South to the Bear Mountain Inn.
The hike will start at the Bear Mountain parking lot and go around the base of the Bear Mountain and end back at the starting parking lot in Bear Mountain.
