nefarious_1_Pretty nice hike  Sucess!


Short with some decent views. There are other trails that are more fun in the area with nicer views but, all in all, Bear Mountain is a good trip.

MelNinoFun lil hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 6, 2012


The trail up was a good hike. Crowded at the summit. The AT down was probably the best maintained trail I've ever seen. Def want to go back.

Date Climbed: Nov 19, 2009


Not way too many people on trail and I didn't mind the people at the top. If your looking for solitude, this is not the place to go. If your looking for a nice hike and don't mind seeing other people outdoors, this was a good day. Great views.

chocodoveCar show  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 19, 2009


Lovely hike, though parking is a rip-off and I wasn't a big fan of the car/bike show at the top. Way too crowded, and seriously I don't need to hear revving engines constantly. Went to the area with the rescued animals afterward, which was very interesting.

TLPnice saturday, but crowded  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2008


It was a nice day, so I went to Bear Mountain after working all night. I liked the mountain in the fall scenery, but man it was too crowded on the summit, and the park. Total rip-off to park there. I would never go again there on a weekend during the fall, summer, or spring. Go there in the winter on a weekday.

Perfect day hike ex-New York City. Hiked in the snow and only saw four other people on the trail. Perfect weather and visibility.

silversummitDid this in 69, 70 and 71 ...


Backpacked on AT over this and ran out of water with our group going through here during a blazing hot July. Don't remember much except this and the crowds!

ParenteauFun hike  Sucess!


Haven't been there in years, but always had more fun just going for the top not using the trails.

EastcoastMikeGood hike/run  Sucess!


I like running the AT, however the other trail has better opportunity for a little scramble.

alexGreat place to run  Sucess!


Going over and descending Bear Mountain is usually the highlight of any run on the Harriman/Bear Mountain trails. Excellent trails with fewer crowds during the winter.

Big Skies 808Training for the AT  Sucess!

Big Skies 808

A nice hike. The training wasn't good enough because I got my ass kicked in Maine and peaced off the trail.
