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.

I've just hiked the climb and back which is great. It's tough enough that you feel the exercise but a short enough climb that it's definitely doable if you are in good health. Would definitely return, maybe to try the 7 mile loop!

The Hudson Valley is an incredible place, you have to visit here. We had four young kids with us and they all did great.. Awesome view of the valley. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

It is a challenging climb in that most of it is just quite directly uphill but the path is well trodden with stone steps. It is shady and beautiful and the view from the top of Anthony's Nose is simply gorgeous. Many people picnic up there and it seems like a perfect place to rest, enjoy the rolling green hills and the wide waters of the Hudson, refuel, and head down quite easily afterwards. What a lovely day, and a reasonable walk from the Metro North if coming from the city and carless.

The view of the Hudson river was spectacular from the top. However, the trail itself was not the most interesting.

This hiking trail is def one of my favorites. Although I've done this trail a handful of times it never gets old for me. The climb is def worth the panoramic view of the Hudson River and most importantly the Bear Mountain Bridge! ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING.

The view from Anthony's Nose is spectacular. Other than that the actual hike is in the opposite direction.
