This is my local trail. It is indeed hard to follow at points given the density of trails in Forest Park, but it's lovely otherwise. There is, however, an increasing amount of trash on and just off the trail. We can all do our part by bringing a spare bag to collect garbage left behind by our uncaring neighbors. There are also volunteer cleanup days organized by the Parks Dept; the next is tomorrow (7/18). You can find more info on this and future events on the NYC Parks Dept website.

Good trails for running. Doesn’t even feel like you’re in the middle of the city.
