Great hike!

This is a fun hike with spectacular views, including the Catskills on clear days. Currently there is still a lot of water on the trail, so plan accordingly.

Today was my second time visiting our states tallest peak, it's a great trail and holds beautiful scenic views from the top. I will definitely be back again, though next time with my dog and friends!

Friend and I hiked at brisk pace to the top of Bear Mountain where the pile of rocks remain. Made it up and down in about 2 hours 40 minutes. Very well marked, was 9 degrees but properly clothed, the cold was not a problem, and even took gloves and hat off after a while as it's a steady incline. The view is spectacular and would like to do the entire loop when not pressed for time, in each of the seasons. BTW, the White Hart Provisions cafe is super for before or àpres hike.
