The surrounding hills and lakes spread out in front of us as we reached the top. We climbed crumbling old stone pyramid at the top for even a better view. The original 22 ft stone pyramid was the work of Robbins Battell and built in 1885. Over the years the tower deteriorated. It was rebuilt a number of times, but now it just a pile of stones adding and addition 8-10 feet to the peak of Bear Mountain.
