    Beartown is amazing. It looks man made. The huge stones have far too many straight lines not to have been built by someone. There looks like walkways and I understand this State park is only a small part of all the huge stone ruins on this mountain. One local told me that it is called Beartown because when the first traders came upon the ruin looking structures the Native Americans said it was built by bears that walk like people. The local term for the Bigfoot. So it is a park named for "BIGFOOT"! Worth seeing!!!!
