Take in the crisp air and breathtaking views as the Circle Line vessel makes its way up the scenic Hudson River to historic Bear Mountain. Circle Line 42 will make the "hike" up the Hudson River straight to Bear Mountain State Park. For three hours enjoy hiking trails (they have 50), nature walks, early foliage or Oktoberfest. Put on by the park, Oktoberfest offers German food and beer, vendors, entertainment and a live band. Feel free to join in the festivities or bypass the event and explore the park on your own, it's up to you. The boat ride takes approximately 2.5 hours. You will then have 3 hours at Bear Mountain to enjoy at your leisure. You will need to be back on board by 3:00pm for the ride back.
