Anthony's Nose, Cortlandt Manor

#2 of 10 in Nature in Westchester County
Anthony's Nose is a peak along the Hudson River at the north end of Westchester County, New York.
Anthony's Nose, together with Dunderberg Mountain, comprises the South Gate of the Hudson Highlands. It forms a ridge running northeast and southwest, being separated from Canada Hill to the northeast by Copper Mine Brook and the "South Mountain Pass", and being bordered on the southwest by the Hudson. The Hudson makes a turn around the southwestern tip, so that the northwestern side also slopes down to salt marshes along the river. On the southeastern side are Mine Mountain and, across Broccy Creek, Manitou Mountain. Most of this land is part of Camp Smith, a New York National Guard reservation.
US 6/202 crosses the Hudson on the Bear Mountain Bridge to the western tip of the mountain, where it meets NY 9D. 9D runs northeast along the northwestern flank of the mountain to Garrison, New York, while 202/6 runs southeast, hugging the cliffs, towards Peekskill. The main line of the New York Central Railroad, now Metro-North's Hudson Line, runs along the mountain and passes under the western tip and the Bear Mountain Bridge through a tunnel bearing the peak's name.

  • Well worth the visit. We scramble straight up within a 45 minutes. Great work out and the view was awesome  more »
  • This is a pretty hard hike uphill pretty much the whole first third of the way. Not to be done without proper attire and some water. Gets crowded up there on a nice dat so parking can be tricky.there....  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.
