About This Destination
A hike on the Jean Aron path offers visitors a relaxing stroll through several dense stands of hemlock and mountain laurel. The path is named for the local poet and author of "The Short Hiker", and it’s serene nature is the perfect retreat into the natural world. The .6 mile path can be part of the larger Bear Meadows trail system or used alone for a quick mile-long hike. Parking nearest to the trail is at the intersection of Bear Meadows Rd. and North Meadows Rd.
