From NYC take the palisades interstate parkway north for approximately 40 miles until its end at the Bear Mountain Bridge. Take a left at the end of the bridge. Approximately .2 miles down the road is a small turn off on the side of the road with enough space for 3 cars.

Moderate hike a bit steep at some parts but it's a pretty quick loop. I took a friend of mine who isn't exactly in hiking shape and he was able to complete the hike without to much difficulty. Really cool view at the top

Great hike! Stairs that never end with a view that makes it all worth it. Your legs will be on fire the next day. It's a fun hike! Easy parking on main road helps too!

Steep start and end. My dog pulled me up the tough sections . Great trail with a great view at the end. Well worth the trip.

Nice, quick hike! Beautiful views of the Bear Mountain Bridge and lower Hudson River. A couple of steep, challenging moments in the first .5 mi (typical AT scramble, almost like an enormous stone staircase), but is totally manageable once you switch off from the Appalachian Trail onto the local trail, where it climbs a bit, and then levels off almost entirely to a leisurely walk in beautiful woods. Very nice views! Bang for your buck, I'd say!

As other reviewers said, this climb was challenging at first but rewarding as it flattened out at the top towards a clearing with a great view of the bridge and river. To make our way back though, we circled around to the EVEN STEEPER part of the trail and it was treacherous-- lots of loose rocks and very steep parts with no other hikers in sight. Next time, we'd hike back the way we came.
