Bear Mountain is one of the most well-known peaks of New York’s Hudson Highlands. Located partially in Orange County in the town of Highlands and partially in Rockland County in the town of Stony Point, it is encompassed by nearby namesakes, Bear Mountain Bridge and Bear Mountain State Park.
Its summit, accessible by a paved road, has several roadside viewpoints, a picnic area and the Perkins Memorial Tower observatory. It is crossed by several hiking trails as well, including the oldest section of the Appalachian Trail (AT). The eastern side of the mountain is made up of of a pile of massive, often house-sized boulders, that peak in a 50-foot cliff face that overlooks the Hudson River. A direct scramble from the base at the shore of Hessian Lake to Perkins Memorial Drive on the summit calls for elevation gain of about 1,000 feet in under a mile. From the summit, the Manhattan skyline can be seen from about 60 miles away.
Bear Mountain was once the greatest ski jumping site in the United States. Consequently, Bear Mountain was considered as a potential site for the 1932 Winter Olympics, however, the games were held in Lake Placid, New York instead.
