“Looking for a quick and easy hike for all ages? Bears Den is a staple! Part of the Appalachian Trail, Caroline and her family made this hike every year as a Thanksgiving tradition from the time she was eight years old. The trail begins on Rt 7 and can be continued past the rock face for a more challenging jaunt. ”
