Arguably the nicest place to walk in Brooklyn. Paved roads well marked, well kept. Delightful change in the middle of the urban jungle. There is also a dirt-paved trail run around the perimeter of the park, which I have not explored yet.

Fun. Local. Clean trail. A couple of pitched (and mild) “hills”. Nice for and out and back run.

It rained on Thursday, and the trail was still six inches of mud on Sunday. There were a few impassable spots of the trail, in sketchy parts of town.

Biggest complaint is that most of the trail is basically people’s backyards, and you have to cross WAY too many busy streets with no traffic lights.

The only reason this gets two stars is because the beach for the last mile is gorgeous! My advice is to do the yellow or blue trails which are actually nice trails, and check out the beach afterwards!

Great local Staten Island trail. You're very close to homes and roads but still a fun and varied path. All of the trail crossings by roads had flooding and required a detour around half frozen ponds of run off in January.

Simply Newyork.

Love it!

Beauty at every turn. Was on my bucket list and it was well worth the trip.

Good view of Manhattan and the bridge. Some old fort buildings and cannons.

Yes it’s all blacktop. But this decommissioned section of the original Vanderbilt Motor Parkway has descent hills with both steady gradient as well as duration. And this is Long Island, we cant be too picky round these parts when it comes to hills. A good, solid run or walk. No cars to worry about and has nice canopy of trees. A Homerun if you you live in Nassau or queens!

Always a nice walk, still discovering new spots each visit. Especially around the lakes

Great way to see the skyline of NYC and others walking the city’s most famous bridge! Worth the time and excitement.

Best outing in NYC, nothing compared to the mountains of CO. It was great to get outside and see trees while we were in the city.

It's all pretty nice. Still some fall colors out Thanksgiving week. So many trails going every which way

HIKED IT PLENTY OF TIMES,BEAUTIFUL HIKE,NATURE HIKE,EASY,RESEMBLES NEW ENGLAND SHORE LINE.

Great views all around but extremely crowded and way too many rude cyclists. Very touristy but definitely something you should do once.

The blue and yellow trails are gorgeous, but don't bother with the white trail!

2nd time in NYC and the Brooklyn Bridge walk is a must. The view of the city is amazing.

Great for biking.

Nice flats to run and walk. City is trying hard to revitalize the park and you can see it with the landscaping. Nice scenic view to take your mind of running.

Soy nuevo y esta Increíble! Asombroso! voy a aprovecharlo mucho y a mi salud traerá muchos beneficios!
FELICITACIONES!!!
