The wooded trails are a little confusing, but cool to be in the woods in the middle of NYC. You may encounter folks “hanging out” around the rocks in the more secluded areas. I didn’t feel threatened, just be prepared! If you plan to walk or jog the reservoir path - note it’s only one way (for safety) so when I went in May, I should have started heading South to be going in the right direction to be right next to the water and views.

Surprising peaceful escape with hills and waterfalls. A Central Park hidden gem.

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.

Good trail. Suggest that you expand and take the bridle trail all the way around the park. It's about 6 miles and a great run.

Great park in the middle of the city, lots of nice walking trails with lakes, monuments, views of the city, etc. Went in the spring and the flowers were beautiful.
