Hikers in the Empire State have it easy in some ways: after all, there are so many trails all over the state that are just waiting to be explored. But on the other hand, that makes it difficult to narrow down where to go. There are so many scenic trails in New York that you could spend your whole life checking them out and still not see all there is to see. Some are best in certain seasons: maybe they’re particularly grand decked out in fall foliage, or maybe they’re great for snow shoeing. But it’s a rare trail in New York that’s accessible and just as enjoyable no matter what the season is. One such trail is the Popolopen Torne Loop Trail at beautiful Bear Mountain State Park. This spectacular hike has gorgeous views in winter, summer, spring, and fall!
