The Bear Mountain Bridge is a toll suspension bridge in New York State, carrying U.S. Highways 202 and 6 across the Hudson River between Rockland and Westchester counties.

The Bear Mountain Bridge held the record for the longest suspension bridge in the world for 19 months from 1924 until it was surpassed by the Benjamin Franklin Bridge in Philadelphia.

The Bear Mountain Bridge enables connections to the Palisades Interstate Parkway and U.S. Highway 9W on the west bank near Bear Mountain Inn to New York State Route 9D on the east.

The Bear Mountain Bridge also carries the Appalachian Trail and New York State Bicycle Route 9 across the Hudson.
