Hiking & Trails


Intertwined throughout the 2,100 acres are currently miles upon miles of trails, ranging from easy to challenging, and with a variety of elevation changes due to the mountainous terrain. Bear Lake Reserve also adjoins Panthertown Valley, a popular 6,700 acre backcountry paradise, often referred to as “The Yosemite of the East.” Those desiring self-guided tours off property will find deep gorges and broad valleys, mountain bogs, granite rock domes, and tranquil creeks to explore throughout the surrounding region.

“So many scenic spots and places to explore!”
