Start at the Anthony Wayne Recreation Area and hike into Bear Mountain State Park via the Fawn trail. The Fawn trail intersects the Timp Torne trail which you can follow South up the ridge leading to Western Mountain then turn East towards Jones Point overlooking the Hudson River. This also makes a great hike. When you reach Timp's peak, you have a great (distant) view of Manhattan. Bring food and water!

Careful around the loop at the end theres a mile long stretch where the trail becomes unmarked if you follow this loop exactly. Easy to get lost given theres a couple of intersections right there. Good trail, ran into a black bear close to the large cave on the trail

I did this trail last week. Very good challenge. The inclination will push you to your limits. Here are few tips:

Summer Time Hike:
1. Better take some serious insect repellents. Mosquitoes will eat you. Honestly speaking am still itching.
2. Caterpillars everywhere on the trees, watch out where and what you are touching
3. Its too bushy in some places, I would suggest not to wear shorts.

Complexity: Hard
Terrain: Muddy and Rocky in some places. Mostly rocky
Trekking Pole: Needed if you are not used to rocky climbs
Foot Wear: Hiking shoe preferably ( Even though my Keen worked very well, but I had to watch out for the bugs, caterpillars and Eastern Newt )
Scenic View: Lots of spots actually
Water Stream: Few small streams but better carry your own water.
Trail Markers: Mostly follow the blue trail, but at a point you have to take 1477 foot path for the loop.
