The park features a large play field, shaded picnic groves, lake and river fishing access, a swimming pool, Trailside Museums 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.

This short ride from New York City will have you breathing in fresh woodland air and basking in nature in no time. Known as having one of the best peaks in New York State, hikers and walkers will fall in love with the rugged landscape of Bear Mountain.

This state park offers its adventurers ample activities with plenty of trails, bike paths, fishing and lake access. Take a dive in the park’s pool and stop by to say hi to some local wildlife at the park’s zoo after a busy day exploring nature.

We think a visit here makes the perfect weekend getaway from NYC!
