Bear-Mountain is nestled in the rugged mountains of the Hudson Valley only 50 miles north of New York City. Each season brings an abundance of outdoor activities to Bear Mountain - each one as exciting as the next. During wintertime, Bear Mountain State Park offers visitors cross-country skiing, sledding, ice-skating and snowmobiling. The warmer months bring mountain biking, swimming, golfing, boating and fishing, camping and picnicking. The very first section of the Appalachian Trail was laid at Bear Mountain, and takes hikers south to the Delaware Water Gap. Paddle boats and rowboats are available for rent at Hessian Lake in the park. A hike up Bear Mountain to the Perkins Memorial Tower rewards visitors with a spectacular view of the Hudson Valley and beyond. If you are looking for fun without such an extreme adrenaline rush, then you might want to spend some time with local deer, hawks, and river otters at the park's zoo. Trailside museums in the park highlight the area's history, including its' role in the Revolutionary War, and gives information on the geology of the region. Picnic areas and playgrounds are scattered throughout the park, and many festivals and craft shows are held at Bear Mountain throughout the year.
