HikingGreat!Rocky

From the toll house to Anthony's Nose and back. Went early and had trail mostly to myself. (Early's the way to go; by the time I left, there were cars everywhere at all three trailheads.) The trail is rocky, with a lot of up and down -- hard work! -- but the scrambling is fun, and the views are great.

This is a challenging trail combo of Camp Smith and Anthony Nose. If you plan to finish the whole route be prepared to wear a durable pair of hiking boots as Camp Smith is reviewed as the top ragged and rocky trail of Bear Mountain(West Point army physically train in here), and bring lots of water/dry food. I would recommend experienced hikers try it at this pandemic time to avoid crowd packed in the common Bear Mountain Park trails. On my way I spotted a black bear from distance. Be careful that you might be the rare hikers, so do not disturb the wildlife by staying on trail and quiet. The second route Anthony Nose is much easier as long as you keep sustaining through the way and atop view of Hudson River/mountain/bridge overlook is absolutely rewarding. I found hiking back through Camp Smith very confusing at the beginning as the trail seemed to lose few key markers on fallen trees. I was almost lost without reception but this app map helped guide me back on trail( almost close to call 911!). The trail was rated as moderate originally, but has recently been changed to hard, which definitely reflects the reality!

Nice trail, very beautiful and serene end view up too. Only thing negative I’d have to say is there’s tons of small rocks on this trail so you’re never fully comfortable walking for majority of it

This trail was a real challenge. But it was a great hike. Lots of very rocky, very steep inclines. But the views along the the Camp Smith trail and at Anthony’s Nose were really great.

Great hike with a lot of up and down incline/declines. View was amazing once yoh get up to Anthonys Nose. Some roads were really narrow at times. I would recommend long pants if you dont want scratches and bugs on your legs.

Did the round trip yesterday, Toll House to the Nose, in some pretty brutal heat. It’s a challenging hike and will definitely test your up and down scrambling abilities in certain parts. Bring plenty of water. Keep your eyes open for the wild Blueberry bushes; you can grab a quick snack, while you rest and take in some of the amazing views. Spotted some black snakes along the rocky outcroppings, so don’t be surprised if you run across an eastern rattler as well; particularly if the weather is hot.

Definitely a rigorous hike! More of a hard/moderate than a pure moderate. Beautiful views of the Hudson and the Bear Mountain Bridge. Lots of people at the lookout near The Nose, but otherwise not terribly crowded. Bring water along and a piece of fruit!

The first half from the Toll House up to the Anthony's Nose trail head is probably the most challenging and pretty quiet. Once you hit Anthony's Nose trail head, it becomes more moderate and a bit more people too. Views at Anthony's Nose is definitely very rewarding at the end!

First mile is surprisingly difficult. Big incline and very rocky. Overall a good workout with some nice views of the river. First half was empty. Second half mildly busy.
