The very North of the Park still all woods except the Park's end at 110th. The North Wood's house the Box House an old fort. You take actual wooded trails through it. A couple spots allow for serious rock climbing. The North Woods encompass the area between 105th and 110th Streets on the Western half of the Park. The area should be avoided at night.
Freya M. on Central Park Bridle Path
This was a fun hike. I still prefer walking along 5th Avenue or along CPW though.
Freya M. on Manhattan: Central Park Trail
It's an American iconic park. I have to say I enjoy it most walking along 5th Avenue. On the cobblestone sidewalk. I've walked it several times. My favorite thing to do in Central Park is eat at Tavern on the Green. I've been three times, one during each season except for Winter.
