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.

Earned my bird by hitting it before sun-up and doing it North to South and back. The entire woods East of the trail is roped off, literally, by the military amd posted with signs threatening arrest, live fire or unexploded ordnance. The views to the west are unparalelled in the Hudson Valley. The trail has three ascents and descents back to the road so it feels longer than it is. From Anthony's Nose to the south, the road is pretty much never out of earshot and, given the Thanksgiving holiday, the trial was well-populated.

Very steep walk the first 30 minutes or so but the view is 100% worth it!

Heading up was challenging. The trails are quite steep in many places. The views at the top are incredible. The trail is easy to miss (we drove right by it twice!) from the road-keep your eyes open for cars parked alongside the road and look for the posted map. I wouldn't recommend this trail for anyone who isn't a seasoned hiker.
