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.

Really fun, quick hike. The ascent is challenging but you're rewarded with gorgeous views of the Hudson, Bear Mountain and the bridge. There's a bonus scramble for a quieter lookout point. We parked close to the bridge and added on some extra mileage by walking across the bridge as well. Will definitely return.

This hike was extremely crowded on a Saturday in October. It’s a lot of climbing, felt like stairs for about half the ascent, and then it levels out and becomes much easier. The view from the top is very nice but with so many other people, I didn’t find it very peaceful. I’d suggest finding something a bit less trafficked.

Quick, challenging, worth it. Especially if you don’t have much time but want a workout and to be rewarded with a view.

Nice, short hike. The first part is steep but then it's smooth sailing to summit as soon as you make the right turn. The view of the Hudson and Bear Mountain Bridge is lovely. Will take about an hour.

We started on white trail and going up was a little hard, and we came back down on the blue trail. The blue trail is hard going up and going down.

Moderate hike with a lot of rocks initially. Can be steep in the beginning however the view at the top is breathtaking!

Short, steep and sweet! Didn't encounter bugs. It was a gravel, rocky trail for most and actually smoothed out at the top. Recommend for all! Push through to the top. Actually walked back across the bridge (the one that you look out over and in all the pictures) at the end for some extra mileage and great river views (and we saw the AT sign!). Hike is accessible from Manitou Station on Metro North. Cut through the neighborhood up and across from the train tracks. Walk on 9D (or something like that) (also walk on the left side people!) for about a mile til you see two trailhead entrances within 200 feet of one another on the left side of the road. Either works great!

Short but a good workout. Nice rocky climb right from the start then dirt trail to great views.

Spend most of your time up top with the overlook of the bear mountain bridge and Hudson River, but don’t miss the true summit less than 50 yards away (follow the blue trail to the USGS marker).

Nice and quick for a pretty view. Definitely best early in the day. Parking was pretty full by the time we came down at 10:30 am.

Fun day hike. Enough challenge to feel like you earned the views, but really only steep for the first 0.4 mile. Hawks, wild blueberries, and blackberries at the top.

Short but steep climb up the Appalachian from the road. The blue trail out to Anthony's nose is a simple woods road walk over to Anthony's Nose. The views are spectacular. Get an early start because it gets crowded up there. Very limited road side parking. We were staying at Bear Mountain Inn so we walked from there over the bridge which made for a 5.4 mile out and back. If you have the time I would recommend doing that. $10 to park there if you are not a guest. Walking across the bridge is a different kind of experience as well and we really enjoyed it.
