Climb Summary


Ties Arts, Bussum

Summary from Ties Arts 2017 US climb trip:

The summit of Bear Mounain is accessible by an entire paved road, has several roadside viewpoints, a picnic area and an observatory at the Perkins Memorial Tower.


The climb is not steep but not easy as well, 5%+ average. It has magnificent views over the Hudson River and Highlands.


The is a unique climb in the Hudson Highlands of  New York State . It is a climb used and popular in the annual Gran Fondo New York. On the top near the Perkins Memorial Tower there is a food/drink opportunity during the Gran Fondo. Amazing view on top of Bear Mountain, especially when are the riders wear the same green Gran Fondo jersey.
