Commuter Lot Parking: Park on the south side of Rt. 7 at the ridge. 39.11528, -77.84719

A short easy hike with a beautiful overlook to the west. Starting at the same parking area on Rt. 7 as the Raven Rocks hike, this out and back hike climbs a gentle 280ft of elevation along the Appalachian Trail to the Bears Den Overlook. Also make the short loop around the Bears Den Trail Center and explorer the surrounding grounds. This hike is popular on nice days and the main overlook can be busy. A good way to beat the crowds is to make the hike in the evening and catch the sunset to the west.
