Let's escape the city!
Accessible by train, we will be hiking in the Bear Mountain area for a rare 360-degree panoramic view: Bear Mountain and Harriman State Park to the South, the Hudson River and Anthony’s Nose to the east and West Point Reservation to the north and west.
Meet at Grand Central Station at 9:15 am for the Manitou train, take a 1 hour and 15 minutes train ride (9:45 am off peak), and arrive at 11 am.
The Popolopen Torne Loop is a 4.3 mile loop of fresh air!
Expect hiking time: 2 - 3.5 hours depending on our pace.
