Ascent Trip Report

Pleasant afternoon hike of Bear in late August. Under Mountain parking lot on Rt 41 was full and I had to park on the road with a dozen other parties. Lots of traffic on the mountain, but much quieter on Paradise Lane, which I took for the ascent, and appears to be much less popular. Did a couple stream crossings I didn't remember from previous trips. Made it up in 2hr 20min and sat on top with a few other parties and took in the views for a while. I decided to power walk / run the entire descent and made it all the way back to my car in just under an hour.
