Hiking in Bear Mountain State Park
Not, you will note, on Bear Mountain, but south of it! Our Ramblers hike this week combined some trails, some old roads, and some getting lost. The weather was perfect, and with the trees bare we had great views of the surrounding hills.
The only downside (unless you count the bushwhacking) was that the trails were quite wet; my feet did not stay dry. Luckily, it was warm enough that wet feet didn't also mean freezing feet.
All told, we went about 10 miles with approximately 2,000 feet of elevation gain.
