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.

First, the directions on this site are wrong. They have you park at Bear Mountain House(incorrect). You have to be on the other side of the bridge. Other than that, the trail follows the AT and merges with the blue that you follow to the top. The trails were very well marked and the hike was nice (even with the snow that started falling ). It welcomed a nice break for some hot chocolate while watching the bridge disappear in the snow. I tracked the hike from the parking area to the the top and down to Camp Smith and them back up and down to the parking area. I would recommend this hike for anyone, especially for parents who are trying to introduce children to the outdoors.

Cool short hike with many options. You can take up to 4 hours and do the long way up or just take about 90 minutes and take the short steep hike. The view is great and it's a good workout.
