Great views of the Hudson River from Perkins Memorial Tower at the top. It's long enough to be intimidating for a flatlander and it would still be considered a climb by mountain goats from Colombia and Switzerland. All in all, Bear Mountain is a very doable climb. Most riders find a steady, moderate gradient pleasant because it allows you to find a rhythm.
