3. Up the Mountain on Paradise Lane

At the intersection of Undermountain Trail and Paradise Lane (both have blue blazes), take a right onto Paradise Lane to continue your ascent up the mountain on a narrow forest path that evens out as you reach a high plateau. Along the way, you will pass a beautiful Black Spruce Bog, a small pond and a swampy area peppered with colorful examples of rare flora and fauna. Look for mature American Chestnut tree's, some with diameters that exceed 8 feet. Hiking in late fall or winter, reveals views of the steep north side of Bear Mountain, on the left.
