  • Moderate trail with great views with the occasional breath taking hawk encounter. For hiking novices, I feel it a nice start. Rock trails followed by dirt trail to give you a break. Big stones you...  more »
  • We had a great day hike here. Total trail distance from the trailhead entrance off 202 to the top and back is around 1.8 to 2.5 miles depending on if you explore a little more at the top. Beautiful...  more »
  • So cool with the castles, bridge and sky. It's a must see place on the east coast. The Hudson is a site in its self and throw in sleepy hollow, walkway on the Hudson and emerald city. We will be back again and again for.sure.
  • Had a wonderful hike here last Thursday. I parked my car on 9D just north of the Bear Mountain Bridge, right before the Veteran's MIA Memorial Highway sign. Walked a few feet down to the trailhead where the white trail starts and ascends up 500 feet to the blue trail. The weather was in the upper 40's to low 50's and overcast but to me it was perfect hiking weather. The ascent was rocky but once getting on the blue trail it was more level. Hiked the blue trail to Anthony's Nose and took some pictures. Then I continued on the blue trail over a rock and walking parallel with the Hudson River and then down the descent toward the toll booth parking area. I did not go all the way to the tollbooth but turned around and took the blue trail back to the white trail. As a precaution, I took a big stick on the way back down the white trail so I would not slip. Only met 3 other hikers but then again it is better to hike during the week and not the weekend when it will be more crowded. My hike lasted about 4 hours.
