Just an hour north of Long Island lies a 5,000-acre playground filled with all sorts of activities for folks who love to play in the outdoors. Join us for a classic 5-mile hike to Perkins Tower on top of Bear Mountain (1,284'). The scenic yet rugged trail leads to some spectacular views overlooking the Hudson Valley. We'll take a short break on the summit to catch our breath, admire the spectacular views and grab a well deserved snack. After looping back down, we'll change out of our hiking shoes and enjoy an ice skating session on the park's rustic outdoor rink. There's even a small zoo and a merry-go-round nearby that we'll check out if time permits.
Cost: $39 ($34 for additional immediate family members) includes guided hike, skate rental and admission to rink and zoo.
This is an intermediate hike with a 1,200' elevation gain to Perkins Tower. All those attending should be in good health and physical condition. Hiking boots and trekking poles are recommended but not mandatory.
