Bearfort Mountain is just one section of the Green Pond Outlier. Bearfort Mountain's summit is hardly distinct, as there are numerous high point candidates but the cliffs surrounding Terrace Pond may as well suffice.
Bearfort Mountain is Passaic County's highest point.
The photograph above was taken from the cliffs surrounding Terrace Pond.
We parked in P7 and went up to the peak on the Terrace pond north trail. There were a ton of super tiny frogs hopping around in the lower shaded sections of the trail. We did a short and very overgrown bushwhack to the true summit which had an official metal “US Coast and Geodetic Survey” marker. (Pictured is me sitting with the marker) Then we hiked around Terrace Pond and down the way we came up. It was a very pretty hike, pond, and forest and the floating bridge and ladder were neat. We only found one tick as opposed to the 20 we found two weeks ago at Big Beech Mountain. Also thank you to Doc for the encouraging words after my Big Beech Mountain hike which was my first “bagged peak”!
After Boulder Pine Peak, headed up the yellow trail from P7 and up to Terrace Pond. Hiked on the floating bridge, up the ladder and got to the cliffs at Terrace Pond. Bushwhacked up to the highest point from there. Back down the blue/yellow dot trail to P7.
