Excellent, easy, fairly long walk or jog. Beautiful and quiet . NYC did a great job of creating a place for everyone to enjoy.

Walked it in the winter, when crowds were light. Can only imagine how crowded it gets in good weather. Nice way to get down to the Meatpacking District from the West Side. Tons of construction along the first part of the walk.

A pleasant, quick loop. Most of the time you are within brush and trees, so not much to see in the distance. There are a few bird watch stands where you can go and view the wildlife in the pond. A lot of bird watchers come here. We were lucky to have come in spring and see snapping turtles tumbling over each other and making waves during their mating season. Quick, enjoyable, good for kids.

I have always enjoyed walking across bridges. The Brooklyn Bridge walk was most awesome

Highly recommended to keep going past the flag plaza (south end) and pick up the trail along the golf course. October-March there is a bird sanctuary that is open to the public. It includes a secluded natural beach, the only one remaining in NY harbor, with some great views.

Great escape from city. Even though you are right in the middle of it being elevated makes it seem like you are on a different planet at time. Very clean and everyone seems friendly on there. Start and finish in Chelsea so you can visit the indoor market of the Food Network.

Great City views while walking a beautifully landscaped trail.

Love this walk. You get to see the city feom a different perspective. Just wish there was less construction.

This is a heavily trafficked trail and it shows in the compacted soil. Be careful of the many exposed tree roots because of this.

Overall the trail is very clean and well maintained. A few nice viewing points of the pond/wetlands. The trail follows a stagnant drainage ditch so bring plenty of bug spray for the mosquitos. Some birds and aquatic wildlife. Also saw a deer.

The map as drawn does not match the trail.

My favorite view of the city, especially when you continue walking along to the Heights.

Easy and scenic! My 5yr old and I took a nice mini-adventure around this beautiful lake.

I love this view of the city.

I really love this hike- what a pleasant surprise! Such variety in scenery and terrain. A great mix of beauty and challenge for a Saturday morning.

Good running area, never crowded. Uneven surface, but well maintained for most of it .

nice path and some good views. A little too close to highway, would have been nice if trail ran along ledge.

Beautiful park and lots of activities to do.
Have seen the Belvedere castle , fountain and the boats lake.

Nearest trail in the area with the view of the city.. walk bike run
