  • After a 2 hour challenging climb on the Major Welch trail, we reached the summit of Bear Mountain and the Perkins Tower, and our reward was the incredible views below us. On the rocks just a few...  more »
  • The scenic Panoramic views are beautiful. It’s a great drive from the city to see the Hudson and enjoy some fresh air.  more »
  • My family and I love the views here. I really like flying my drone. The footage is amazing. That’s become harder as of late though. Check local laws. You really can’t beat the views though.  more »
  • Wonderful view and you can see New York city on a pretty clear day. The tower has a bit of steps that can be a bit narrow for going up and down but it has a lot of history. The best part is just driving to get up here has some amazing scenery and the views in the fall are breathtaking.
  • The trail is beautifully maintained and the tower has a cute photo display inside. The trail to the top is steep but worth the climb. You can definitely take kids up the Appalachian Trail path to the top. It's basically just a super long stone staircase to the top of the mountain. The photo display in the tower was interesting and provided an interesting background for the area.
  • Nice view, could see Manhattan. The tower is really nice. Have been 3 times so far, but never seen it clean. Very informative displays and good views!
  • Love coming back here time and again. We have done all the trails in bear mountain park and i find the major welch trail to be the most adventurous one. You will find great views from the peak as well as from many different points on the trail.
  • Beautiful views of the surroundings and new York skyline... Nice area to relax and take in nature. Easy to get to by car, much more difficult by bike or hike. It's a climb to get up there..
