A Quick Trip to Bear Mountain!


Many of you might know by now that I really enjoy doing quick get away trips. For me, there isn’t better season to enjoy from a nice view than fall! This time, my friends and I did a quick trip to Bear Mountain.  
Bear Mountain State Park  is 1 hour drive from Manhattan, and it is located on the west side of the Hudson River. As you can imagine, the views you get to see in this park are just amazing!




Bear Mountain offers many activities you can enjoy from such as biking, hiking, boating, picnicking, and running. During the winter it is a great place to go ice skating and cross-county skiing.

If you wish to stay over night, there is an amazing accommodation where you could go to. The Bear Mountain Inn is a rustic hotel located in the heart of the mountain. It is a great place to enjoy from very good food, drinks, and even from a relaxing spa! (isn’t it great?)



I have to say that this is one of my favorite parks! I’m the kind of person that once I like a place, I would never get tired from going back to it. Another good thing from Bear Mountain, is that it is a dog friendly park. Even if you don’t have any dog, it is really nice to see all the cute doggies that hangout around there.



Outfit Details:

Michael Kors Coat (Similar) // H&M Green Turtleneck Sweater // Zara Jeans // Zara Crossbody Bag // White Sneakers (Similar)

It was a great experience to have gone to Bear Mountain with friends! Time flew by, but we really enjoyed our time at this amazing place. If you haven’t gone to Bear Mountain yet, I highly recommend you to give it a try!

Do you know any other places like this in New York? I would love to hear some of your recommendations!

Have a great rest of the week!

    You took some amazing pictures! There is so many beautiful parks and places to go on Long Island. Two of my favorites are Morgans Park in Glen Cove and Cedarmere Preserve in Roslyn. Thanks for sharing!

    I heard the Bear Mountain before, but I have no chance to go there. I may visit there after the final exam. Thank you for your sharing.
