Easy trail (not too rocky) decent elevation and trails are marked okay. Best to follow the GPS as it is easy to miss junctions. Will be back when it is green.

I got lost a bit in the end because I couldn’t find how to get back on blue trail in the end . I went counter clockwise . So be careful.

The trail is between moderate and hard, so you need good shoes for sure. Couple of nice lookouts where we rested and ate our sandwiches. We saw deer, but they mostly stayed off the trail. Keep an eye out for loose rock and slippery leaves because the climb/descent is steep in some areas. We saw a number of trail runners so obviously depending on ability this is an easy trail for the seasoned folks. The blue trail markers were clear and we had no issues. After the 5-hr hike, we had a nice hot ramen meal in Peekskill before heading back to NJ.

From the parking lot, you must walk alongside the road to get to the start of the hike. Following the red dot on white marker, it can be a tough initial ascent but it evens out at the top. Good views of Peekskill and the Bear Mtn Bridge. Due to snow runoff, there are many muddy and slippery parts on the trail (but it makes for pretty little streams). For a Sunday afternoon, the trail was not that crowded and parking was easy.

We went counter clockwise, starting with the red/white markers. Walk up big cobblestones of old railway with streams and little waterfalls around. Views of Peekskill, Indian point and bear mountain bridge. At bridge lookout we turned around and came back down the same way. 2 hours for the whole hike. Want to go back and do the blue half of the trail. Good workout hike, I recommend!

1st half was very clearly marked as the red dot trails. The 2nd half was very poorly marked. Follow the blue dots, at some point, the trail is so over burdened with trees that they just changed the trail.

Nice trail. Followed blue markers until I reached a little stream after the cave. After that, there are more blue markers that take you uphill, but not the AllTrails loop route. So I followed the gps onto a path on the right that was not marked. I went clockwise . Nice views throughout, very rocky on the way down.

Went counter clockwise, and on the way back, due to the downed trees and fallen leaves, it’s very easy to get off trail. Ended up using all trails as a guide and heading towards the main trail but it was a lot of bushwhacking. View at the top of the loop of the bear mountain bridge is nice!

Keep track of your trail markers, down trees make it very easy to lose your way! If out after 4pm, pack the extra layer!

Steep at beginning and end. Lots of loose rocks especially at end if you do clockwise. But very fun. I’d definitely say it’s more on the challenging side.

Can be technically challenging- not for very young children
