HikingGreat!Rocky

Great hike. Was easy to get to from NYC without a car (train to Peekskill then biked to trailhead). Car noise was the biggest complaint but otherwise challenging and fun. Rocky with elevation gains and losses the whole time so ankle support was essential.

HikingRocky

eh - a few great views along the Hudson but about 1/3-1/2 of the trail was within earshot of the highway. Still had a great hike, good length, and saw about 10 other parties in late December. Felt more medium-hard though leaves were slippery and slowed down our pace.

The first part was nice and empty. After the parking lot, it was quite busy. Great lookout points throughout

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

We did the 6.4 hard trail. Def some steep scrambling at times and so many leaves on the ground, making it a bit slippery. Beautiful hike, lots of great spots for views. The top has an amazing view but it was def crowded up there.

On a warm November Saturday, the trail was (as expected) quite crowded. Although from the Bear Mountain Toll House to the first trailhead (II), it was quiet, peaceful and had some incredible overlooks. I went past Anthony’s Nose and up part of the AT to Canada Hill. There no view at Canada Hill but I only saw one other person S Mountain Pass Road.

Definitely a lot of rocks and uphill climbs, but so worth it. Many places to stop for views, including Anthony’s Nose.

HikingGreat!

A hard trail with much of your time you are either climbing or descending. Great workout with many beautiful views of the Hudson. Very rocky.

Great hike! Saw very few people on the first part of the trail, but it got busy when we hit the next parking lot. The real payoff view was Anthony’s Nose, but if you want a more challenging and longer hike, this is a great addition.

HikingGreat!

Great fall hike, without too much traffic and too much difficulty. (Hiked on a Sat afternoon) But still challenging and dynamic, with great views. Took about 3hrs, plus another hour each way from Peekskill station. Would highly recommend!

Hiking

Hike was fun. Leaves are a good color right now. Lots of ups and downs, so the way back is almost as tough as the way up. Traffic was moderate. Dead leaves are piled in the path and can make it slippery at times, just be conscious of it. Views all along and at the top were very nice. Lots of boats and trains passing by below. Heights shouldn’t be a problem for people with issues with heights as you’re not near cliffs unless you want to get close to it at the very top.

Trail was very quiet (Friday arrived around 11:30a). Lot had plenty of parking. Trail appeared to be not heavily traveled to my surprise. Few down trees but nothing crazy.

HikingGreat!Rocky

This was a fantastic hike on a beautiful autumn Friday. Challenging climbs in several areas. Great views all around. Highly recommend for a worthy workout. Otherwise, maybe stick to the two mile climb from the closer trailhead.
