A short steep hike with an amazing and rewarding view at the top.

As advertised, this is a hard hike with a rewarding view. We went a bit beyond Anthony’s nose before heading back. The first 30-45 minutes of the hike comprise of a steep ascent. As novice hikers, we had a stop a few times to regroup. I would strongly advise bringing snacks for this hike. The energy burst will definitely help. Overall, it is a nice and sweaty hike.

A note to those who are planning to come here by train. The walk from the train station to the beginning of the hike itself is about 30 mins.

Fabulous views of the Hudson Valley and the Bear Mt. Bridge.

This was a great hike! I love scrambling up rocks and it was like the start of the Kaaterskill Falls hike, but it was like that the whole way! I defenitely recommend going

Amazing views of the Hudson River valley and Bear Mountain

Hiked up on Memorial Day w my wife & 2 small dogs . Fun rock scrambles and a steep start.

Been a while ago, but will be back! loved the hike!

really nice views and cute town. there is a shuttle that takes you to this trail from the station (The driver is named Johnny and is awesome!)

Loved this trail. Lots of steep ups and downs. Continue past Anthony’s nose for the full effect!

Alot of rocks best to wear hiking shoes, beautiful view of the bear mountain and it is best to go early since it gets crowded.

Nice hike with pretty views at Anthony’s nose. Steep section in the beginning but flattens out after the first uphills. I continued on past the nose just to add some distance, and there were some more views going down.

Beautiful view from the top!

Hiked on 9/29. Amazing, not too strenuous, short hike with one of the best views above the Hudson.

pretty good hike with a nice view of the bear mountain bridge and the Hudson river

Very scenic trail and great for a long walk.
Not hard at all.

Great out and back trail of moderate difficulty. Awesome end viewpoint overlooking the Hudson River and is a great picnic spot. Views along the way can be a little boring. Steep portions for sure! Loses a star only due to its extreme overuse and being out and back....you constantly have to move out of the way to get past people which is distracting from the scenery.

Difficult but manageable
