Went out with a friend and my dog. Great hike up,although coming down, it wasn't clear with the blue markings and we ended up half a mile north of were we parked. Had to walk along the road. Nevertheless, great views on the hikes and on the walk back. Would definitely do it again and this time follow the white trail back down.

Great trail... One has to make sure that you follow the blazes however or you can end up on a federal shooting range and that is not a good thing.

Views are spectacular especially in the fall.

If you're looking for a challenging and extremely steep climb I recommend you go up from the Bridge cable.
It's well worth the effort once you get up top.
Excellent views of The Hudson River, Bear Mountain State Park and Bear Mountain Bridge!

Awesome hike. Love the views. Arrived at 9am, parked right at the trailhead and headed up. Straight up for first half mile but then easy. Views are amazing. On a really clear day, you can just barely make out the NYC skyline in the distance.

I have also heard this called the Camp Smith Trail. We used two cars since we live nearby and parked one car on Route 9D/202 on the east side of the Bear Mountain Bridge going North, less than a quarter mile up the road (near the base of the Appalachian Trail) and the other car at the old Bear Mountain Bridge Tool House parking lot on Route 9D/202, about 3/4 of a mile north of the entrance to Camp Smith. Short but strenuous hike. Start early to avoid the black flies. Absolutely incredible views looking down on the bridge and across the river to the Bear Mountain Park. For some reason the acoustics of this location allow you to hear people on the dock across the river in the park. They are a long way off but I guess their voices carry well across the river. The view is well worth the effort of the hike. Take some water and a camera.
