Bear Mountain Loop via Major Welch Trail and Appalachian Trail

@ Bear Mountain State Park

  • September 22, 2019, 10:00AM

We’ll meet at the junction of the Appalachian Trail and the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail near the southern end of Hessian Lake. From there, we'll walk north along the western shore of Hessian Lake to the start of the Major Welch Trail. Turning left into the woods, the ascent begins on stone steps, but quickly becomes rocky footpath. Gradually the climb becomes steeper, passing through stands of mountain laurel, as the footpath alternates between rocky footpath, well-graded footpath, stone steps and rock outcrop. We'll enjoy the north facing and panoramic views of the Hudson River, before we complete the climb to the summit. Here you can explore Perkins Memorial Tower and enjoy the all-encompassing views of the Hudson Valley. After a rest and lunch, we'll continue to the Appalachian Trail and begin our descent. After crossing and then joining parts of Perkins Drive, the trail descends over 800 magnificent hand-hewn stone steps built in place by NY-NJ Trail Conference Volunteers over a 5 year period. We'll pass a seasonal waterfall, cross a wooden bridge and enjoy views of Iona Island and the Hudson River. At the end of these giant steps, we'll be right back where we started.

All visitors to the United States Military Academy are encouraged to tour the Museum to view the oldest and largest diversified public collection of miltaria in the Western Hemisphere. The Museum supports cadet academic, military and cultural instruction. Its collections include nearly all aspects of military history and encompass the history of West Point and the United States Military Academy, the evolution of warfare, and the development of the American Armed Forces. Based upon captured British materials brought to West Point after the British defeat at Saratoga in 1777, the Museum collections actually predate the founding of the United States Military Academy. When the Academy opened in 1802, many Revolutionary War trophies remained to be used for cadet instruction. By the 1820s, a teaching collection of artifacts existed at the Military Academy and after the Mexican War (1846 - 1848) West Point was designated by Executive Order as the permanent depository of war trophies. In 1854 the first public museum was opened and today it represents the culmination of more than two centuries of preserving our military heritage.
