Hiked 6/21/20 - trail is open. Great hike. First half mile pretty strenuous, then it's an easy walk to Anthony's nose. Lots of places to sit and relax to admire the view. There were lots of cars parked on the road, even where it said no parking, but I didn't see any cars with tickets.

My first time here this is an amazing trail great to rain on the way up the view at the end is absolutely worth it.

*Parking available down the street; walk to the beginning of the trail to start. This trail is straight uphill, get ready to climb up some rocks. Steep elevation and no scramble/straightaways making for a difficult ascend up the mountain with a very rewarding view at the top. Took us 15min to reach the top but will probably take others 30-40 min depending on your stamina. Other than that pretty short hike overall unless you want to continue on to the Appalachian Trail. Overall: 7.6

Beautiful hike done back in September, definitely a little tough the first half uphill but nothing impossible. Hate how you have to park on the road.

Really lovely well maintained trail. A good mix of shade and open conditions. It’s a bit crowded during the afternoon so for those who are concerned about social distancing, you should definitely come early in the morning or a bit later in the afternoon.

I would say this is definitely a challenge, but a nice one at that. If you’re a first time hiker it is somewhat difficult.

The senior hiker: the day after 4 inches of snow, trail is packed snow. Crampons and walking sticks were tremendous AIDS. First half a mile was about 500 feet in elevation. After that the trail became relatively flat. I only gave it four stars because my preference is to see total nature not man-made stuff.

Easy trail once you pass the rock incline in the first .6 of the trail. It was muddy when I went on 11/JAN.

Lovely hike! Lots of other families out with kids and dogs. Beware mud on the rocks down can make things a bit slippery - some small children were struggling.

First time using my new spikes, and what a difference they made. Beautiful sunny winter afternoon for a quick hike to a magnificent view.

Great short trail. Up and down took me an hour and 10 minutes, with some time to take in the views. There is minimum parking on the side the road where the trail begins. Maybe fits four or five cars. Then you have to find space on the side of the road. The way up starts steep but levels off. The views of the bridge and river are amazing, especially as the sun is coming up. I hiked it today starting at 6:50am. Coming down I chose to head down the steeper AT towards the front of the bridge. Much steeper than I had planned, but that’s what makes it fun! I would love to have gone up that way. You just have to take your time and watch your footing. Similar to the scramble at breakneck if you’ve done that. All in all a great hike for short time commitment! (I actually did this trail first then went over the bridge to do the bear mountain loop since I came from central CT region!)

Trail was easy. I would prefer to stay on trail and not look for shortcuts. Follow white to blue and it’ll take you right to the beautiful view of the bridge.

A-MAZING views at sunset if you’re confident returning in some darkness. Great views. Steeeeep incline at the beginning that levels off-ish, makes for great going down on the way out. Ok for bigger dogs. Saw a little one getting carried.

Really beautiful trail for a fall walk. I had the morning free before I went to work this afternoon, so I decided on a quick hike! Took me a little over an hour not counting the time it took for me to sit and look out over the river, bridge, and leaves. Only downside is the lack of parking on 9D north/East bound. Definitely recommended.

not a bad, easy trail but it is super crowded. I wouldn't say it was great, but if you're in the mood for something short, not a lot of incline and with a good viewpoint then the trail is good for that!

Wonderfully rewarding short, intense hike that is a nearly straight climb up but spills you out to a gorgeous view of Bear Mt and the Hudson Valley. VERY crowded over Columbus Day Weekend but everyone on the trail was friendly and jovial and it felt like a festival! Steep but doable. 7 and 9 year old scrambled up the trail with little trouble. Wonderful hike if short on time. Can get up and down in about an hour.
