Day 1 New York-Bear Mountain State Park-New York(98 miles)

We will depart from the Port Authority bus terminal at either 8:45am or 11:15am, enveloped in the folds of the west Bank of the Hudson River, lies Bear Mountain State Park. Buses depart New York City daily and bring you to the cornerstone of the park - the Historic Bear Mountain Inn and Overlook Lodge. An amazing portfolio of nature's attractions await your arrival; including a large play field, children's playground, shaded picnic grove, fishing and boating docks, swimming pool, Trailside Zoo, Merry-Go-Round Pavilion, and countless spectacular hiking trails. An un-covered outdoor ice rink is open seasonally for skaters and the Perkins Memorial Tower sits stately atop Bear Mountain- boasting views of the NYS skyline! We will return to New York City in the evening.

This 5,000-plus-acre park not far outside New York City is a favorite spot for skiers and hikers in the greater New York and northern New Jersey areas. Bear Mountain itself is a 1,200-foot-tall peak that overlooks the Hudson River.

Duration: 2 Hours 30 Minutes to 5 Hours

Loved this trip. It was easy navigating around - getting on the bus and getting back. Bear mountain is a beautiful place. I highly recommend renting the boat for $10 for the hour. I will definitely book this again in the fall.

It's such a beautiful place and so much to explore, one day is not enough. I will go again when its summer. I went last year Fall 2015, and that's the best time to go because of the changes in leaf colors, Looked so beautiful

Bus was on time, clean and comfortable. This is not a guided tour, just the bus ride. You need to redeem the tickets at the ticket counter in Port Authority Bus Terminus. The bus will drop you in front of the Bear Mountain Inn. Grab a trail map from the Inn reception, and start hiking. We hiked up the Appalachian Trail to the Perkins Tower (which is also the highest point, nice views) and came back down the Major Welch trail. Trails are well marked, but certain sections (especially on MW trail) can be tough for novices. Better check with the nice people at the Inn or fellow hikers for suggestions. The Inn has a basic cafe and a restaurant. We may stay there a night next time. Overall good trip!
