Tips

Note: New York City may close parts of the highline to prevent overcrowding. If unconventional is your thing, then High Line Park is for you. This is an awesome elevated rail track transformed to park in Manhattan. While less traditional than “normal”, this park offers wildflowers, greenery, and outdoor art installations. The High Line stretches from Manhattan’s West side which includes Hell’s Kitchen and West Chelsea. Perfect for families or just for a sunset stroll, the views against the Hudson River will make you forget about the busy city below. A water feature lets kids (and the young at heart) splash, and a small grassy area in the new section tempts emerging walkers. The High Line is open from 7am-8pm daily, with the last entrance at 7:45pm. In April through summer, the park is open until 10pm. The park has nine access points: Gansevoort Street, 14th and 16th steets (both with elevator access), 18th Street, 20th Street, 23rd Street (elevator access coming, 26th Street. 28th Street and 30th Street (elevator access).

If you are bringing a stroller, be sure to use the access points with elevators. You can bring food to the park and sit at one of the cafe tables or on a bench. The popular lounges are at a premium, so you may have to wait for one. There is only one bathroom, near the 16th Street entrance and lines can get long; don't wait until your newly trained toddler HAS to go.

Great city walk - better than great really - this is very special. New plant growth and fun artworks coexist among the bones and ghosts of old Chelsea. I might even have heard ghosts of lovers and gangsters still whispering. Just know this - during COVID-19 the trail only goes one direction- you must start at 14th or 23d Street and end at Hudson Yards. Have fun!

Got a late start so we only went maybe halfway. Beautifully done park! Lots of seating Alo g the way, rest rooms available and places to shop and snack. Must be gorgeous in the warmer weather when the trees and gardens are in bloom. However, sooo crowded!

As far as a city walk this was really cool. There are gardens and art all throughout the high line. There are plenty of stairs to get off and explore the different neighborhoods. Easy and fun walk.

Very relaxing walk. Is a mini forest in the heart of a very active city. Great way to relax half a little something to eat and just contemplate on the meaning of life. You need to relieve some stress and scape the hectic city life for a bit? Great come here.

Lovely walk downtown with some interesting views of the neighborhood and cool architectural structures built on an abandoned elevated railway. Also some nice gardens. Good place to relax and watch the sunset. Worth a walk if you don’t mind a leisurely pace (it’s narrow and there are big crowds usually) and being in close proximity to bees with little room to run, ha.

I used to love the High Line. It was my favorite place to walk before heading home from work. Now it's just over crowded with tourists who stand around and stop the flow of traffic. You can't walk here anymore, it's a place to park yourself and enjoy the plant life over Manhattan.

Its just walking, can't be considered as a hike. Highline is free elevated park and has flee markets in summer and concerts do happen.

Normally, urban trails seem as if they are stuck in the city. The High Line is special because it feels like it's part of the city, weaving through the buildings of Manhattan. The elevated pathway captures the bustle of NYC yet still feels removed from the hubbub. A real surprise and treat for NYC visitors.

What a great way to repurpose an extended piece of an abandoned elevated rail line. It was very crowded on a sunny April mid afternoon so it's hardly a relaxing walk - must visit at a quieter time of day. The landscaping and periodic rest spaces are nicely designed. And the elevated view of street crossings is very cool. I recommend this walk when you are in the area.

Really interesting concept: an elevated "park" that has a variety of trees and native plants. Little shade though.

Really enjoyed running on the High Line. Gets you up and off the streets so you can enjoy the scenery. Got there just as it was getting crowded so time of day is important. All concrete on top of old train tracks. Lots of construction as this area has lot of growth because of the trail. Well worth doing.

You don’t come to NY for the hiking trails. This is basically just an elevated sidewalk, crowded & noisy, but it does have greenery & places to sit, along with some interesting architectural views.
