Northwest Camp on Bear Mountain

January 31st, 2020

Bear Mountain in Salisbury is Connecticut’s tallest summit at 2,316-ft. While Bear Mountain itself is a well-known hiking area, the Northwest Camp on Bear Mountain is a hidden treasure.  Available for year-round reservation, this cabin lies along the Appalachian Trail and offers a rustic, hike-in experience in the heart of the Mount Riga area of Salisbury. In the winter, this secret gem is best accessed by a quick 3.2-mile hike from the Undermountain Trailhead on Route 41 in Salisbury. Carry-In, Carry-Out, and Bring Your Own Personal Items, including bedding/sleeping pad and water. Firewood, bunk beds, and a rustic log camp will welcome you. A stream behind the cabin can provide water as well but requires filtration. Six Indoor and Four Platform Sleeping areas make this Litchfield Hills Retreat a great destination for groups seeking to immerse themselves in the heart of the Berkshires.
