NYC Day Trips – Bear Mountain (State Park) Beyond New York City

Orange and Rockland counties of New York

With Spectacular views of the surrounding peaks and ridges there is an outlook along route 202 which yours truly came across. ‘and it’s truly spectacular! Of course there’s much more within the parkland and mountain range itself, we’ll get around to that in due time.

The Bear Mountain peak rises about 1,305 feet above sea level on the western bank of the Hudson River. As well of course is Bear Mountain State Park which features opportunities for sports lovers in Winter and Summer, an indoor Merry-Go-Round, Sports fields, boating opportunities, hiking, ice skating, fishing, pool and so much more! Let’s not forget about Hessian Lake on which one can rent boats and such or simply admire as you sit along the grassy edges of this water masse.

Of course what may be the very best feature for outdoor ethusiasts and photographers of every caliber is Perkins Memorial Drive which leads one on a very long winding uphill trek to the peak. It’s here where you’d find the tower offering yet better views of the surrounding highlands. The road leading to this peak is the sort which’ll have your ears popping as you continue on to greater heights. Coming back down though, yours truly had to go perhaps a bit slower than the recommended speed level of 15mph. Why? Well, the cliff-like edges are quite close to this two way road itself and it wouldn’t benefit anyone to go any faster than that.

The Bear Mountain Bridge you’ll come across along route 202 connects the Eastern & Western sides of the Hudson River. The bridge reaches a height of 155 feet and spans 2,257 feet.
