I run Central Park really often,doing the different loops. highly recommended, although there are quite a lot of people on the south end.

We actually did the whole loop and it eventually took 4 hours and about 6 miles. Wonderful. Pick up a map at Columbus Circle for $2 to keep track of the different sights. The lady also gave us good info such as the waterfalls in the northeast corner. Have a bite at the boathouse. Take water bottle and you can fill up. A must do if you are in NY.

Beautiful! Crowded but a large, well-kept Park with lakes, flowers, rocks, trees, botanical garden, fort, and zoo!

Well maintained, highly traveled Park in Manhattan with unique areas and topography that everyone knows. I went through the park on a carriage once and walked the whole park on another trip.

We were actually in Central Park this past Saturday (6.3.17) to participate in YAI's Central Park Challenge to support people with disabilities. It was a great day. The park is a substantial size to enjoy a walk and the inter city garden. Good environment for the young and old to walk, bike ride, visit zoo or do a bit of model boat sailing.

This looks like the horse trail that starts parallel to the reservoir. If it is then its flat loose gravel and NO BIKE RIDING IS ALLOWED.

When you like to hike, you take what the city gives you. Great place to hike (walk) and explore.
