Okay trail. Still under development and construction. Whenever it’s done it’ll have some nice views.

Trail was pretty good for the most part, a couple of muddy spots you just walked around.

Wouldn’t know how trail is because they don’t allow dogs. A state park, paid for by taxpayers and only certain taxpayers can use it.

First time on this trail. An overcast, December day with occasional light precipitation. On the one hand, you have to pay close attention to the map to stay on the exact trail. On the other hand, you are basically headed to the end of the park, so it may not matter much.

No place quite like Central Park, center of the known universe.

Please note that part of this trail, the Putnam Greenway that used to be the New York Central Railroad, is closed for construction until the Summer of 2020. It's being surfaced from the south end of the lake to the north end of the park.

This walk is for everyone. It's makes for a great day in the park all season long. You can even bring your dog along for a long walk with you as well.

I found it really hard to follow the planned route. Definitely seemed to go off trail a number of times. Nevertheless very pretty and classic tourist hike for those interested. Nice cold weather training for a Texas winter.

moderate hike. great hills

Good old Central Park drive. Walked home last night after dark and road was pitch black north of the 103 crossover. Flashbacks to the 70’s brought on a strong urge to flee. Told a cop driving through and tonight the lights were back on. Yay! Also complained thru 311, but that was a no go; the rep couldn’t find the park drive on a map. Sigh.

Old Putnam trail is closed as of right now.. (11/2/19) but still plenty to explore in and out of the main pathway

Great for running. Awesome views, heavily trafficked but hey that’s New York.

Loved this trail. Have completed a few times with children and enjoyed very much. Easy and fun!

nice stroll through the park. with it being a sunday afternoon, was very crowded. We stopped halfway at the lake and spent an hour canoeing..(or should I say I paddled while my wife took pictures!!!) all in all, a very nice and easy way to spend an afternoon in NYC

If you like to be among lots of people, this is the place to be. Good workout as well.

A good trail! People are expected. Paved a good way though. There's some opportunities to deviate the route if you're looking to go through rough terrain. All the tunnels were.cool, especially the last one with the river running alongside it. I started at dusk and got here by sundown and it was pitch black on the way there and through in the north woods. A headlamp would be a good move! It was memorable and would be perfect for a spooky evening out next month. Standing in front of the finish line right now, it was a fun trek. And civilization is a few hundred feet away. The view that awaits you here is gorgeous, even at night.

I would recommend this trail to people looking for an easy dog-friendly hike. Not too crowded with the exception of a cross-country event happening. A ton of space, great views, and parking by the horse stables.

The trail in Central Park isn’t easy as I thought, unless I use the map from the AllTrails app, but no matter than that, it’s still recommendable in doing it again. Central Park is a journey for me, and hopefully one day, when it’s sunny out, and not too buggy, I’ll go on this trail again.

took my 4 lbs Chihuahua and she did great! she walked about 3 of our 9 miles too! there was lots of glass on some portions of the trail, which was disappointing! some points are right along the highway

Easy bike path to follow, smooth roads. A lot of others riding bikes and walking though, but still not a difficult bike and enjoyable for all skill levels
