Forested Hills North of Bear Mountain
This viewpoint is located along a newly-constructed portion of the Appalachian Trail near the summit of Bear Mountain at Bear Mountain State Park (the Appalachian Trail isn’t new, but every once in a while, a small segment might be relocated to improve the trail or avoid some sort of issue). The primary view is to the northeast looking up the Hudson River, but this view toward the northwest encompasses a nice swath of forested mountain/hill tops. The foreground is within northern Bear Mountain State Park, while the distant hills are within the boundaries of West Point.
