Bearfence Mountain reviews
This was a fun hike with amazing views, although I was relieved when it was over. You will definitely need to use both hands and be pretty agile. We didn't bring a backpack or anything with us on... more »
The trail without the rock scramble is listed as easy, and while it isn't difficult it is completely uphill on rocks. All of the trail is through the trees and very shaded. The view comes at the top of the climb, but the view isn't anything too spectacular. We personally felt the views from the road were better and that our time could have been spent on a more enjoyable hike. Not disappointed to have done it, but definitely will not do it again.
What a great trail. Love the rock scramble. There are places that I could easily see someone sliding off and seriously getting hurt. So hang on to your children and use spotters on the difficult parts. The view was tremendous and well worth the hike.
