Bear Mountain State Park
Bear Mountain State Park in Bear Mountain, N.Y., has something for everyone. From miles of hiking trails to an inn with all the comforts of home, the park offers nature in all of its glory for both the avid outdoorsman as well as those just out for a scenic Sunday stroll. Hiking trails and many special events are free. 

Bear Mountain welcomes more visitors every year than Yellowstone National Park. Hiking, boating, picnicking, swimming, cross-country skiing, sledding, ice skating as well as a zoo and trailside museums, continue to draw families to the park.

Bear Mountain State Park is situated in rugged mountains rising from the west bank of the Hudson River. The park features a large play field, shaded picnic groves, lake and river fishing access, a swimming pool, Trailside Musueums and Zoo, hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails. An outdoor rink is open to ice skaters from late October through mid-March. The Perkins Memorial Tower atop Bear Mountain affords spectacular views of the park, the Hudson Highlands and Harriman State Park. Perkins Memorial Drive and Tower are open from April through late November, weather permitting.

The park is for both the avid outdoorsman as well as those just out for a scenic Sunday stroll. Bear Mountain was so-named because the profile of the mountain resembles a bear lying down. Bear Mountain welcomes more visitors every year than Yellowstone National Park. The Bear Mountain Inn, built in 1915, offers visitors all of the comforts of home with nature as a backdrop. Lakeside lodges also are available for those who seek a more rustic atmosphere and a little more privacy. And Overlook Lodge, a modern hotel obscured from sight by the trees but nestled above Hessian Lake, is also available for overnight stays.
