Moderate hike. Gorgeous views.

OK hike. Hard uphill to start. once you make to the blue trail, it becomes very easy. Saw kids on the hike. Views are very nice it and make the hike worth it.

Absolutely stunning views from the top and very easy hike. Short and simple. Fab for kids.

Fantastic hike - no rock climbing experience or special gear required but the entire hike is a climb ranging from steep to moderate. The view at the top is fantastic and absolutely worth the hike! The kids loved scrambling up and down rocks. Almost the entire hike is in the shade so relatively cool and nice breeze at the top. About 4 miles round trip, took about 2 hours with a couple short stops. Trailhead is literally off the side of the road so follow directions and use the facilities before you get there! No restroom or facilities at or near the hike.

We started on Anthony's Nose entrance as marked on this map, and the view from Anthony's Nose was pretty nice. However, it came relatively early in the trail. The rest of the trail was not as exciting. The trail itself is pretty challenging though. I would recommend starting at Camp Smith and finishing at Anthony's Nose rather than what's described here.

God hike windy view overall it’s rad dude lot o blue Berry’s.../Wyatt

Fantastic reward at the end. Had to take some breaks because rocks were wet and slippery but definitely a trail you have to do.

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!
