Bear Swamp

Three miles of hiking trails and terrific views of hillside orchards

To early settlers, Bear Swamp was truly rough terrain: steep, wooded hillsides and exposed bedrock descending to boggy wetlands and swamp. Nonetheless, all of the land was cleared for forest products, pasture, and even hayfields. But contemporary explorers will find a landscape of hard beauty, with field reclaimed by forest and the dark lowlands illuminated by colorful wildflowers in bloom.
