Beautiful and clean. Pristinely paved track with clear signage indicating the directions and lane assignments for walkers/runners and bikers.

I went on a Friday afternoon in July/2018, and only glimpsed one other hiker in the 4 hours I was hiking. Serene, peaceful, and beautiful are the words that come to mind. I hiked the White Trail about 7.5 miles out and the same distance back, but be careful and take note of landmarks or you can easily get turned around and lose your bearings. Saw plenty of wildlife like deers, rabbits, and birds, and will definitely visit again.

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

Nice loop around Prospect Park, fully paved the whole way. Pedestrian walkway on the left, bikes down the middle. Good views of the lawns, with tons of BBQs and picnickers on an early summer day. You'll also pass by the lake about half way through. Last half mile or so is a gentle little climb. Worth checking out Grand Army Plaza and the beautiful Bailey Fountain, which are adjacent to the park.

The hill definitely offers a challenge but it sure is fun going back down on your bike.

This is an incredible park! You can keep to main roads or go off the main tracks though more dense trees and it gets seriously beautiful and wild!! Totally unexpected but this might be my favourite park in New York. Saw lots of bird life and animals going about their day which added to the magic.

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.

best ride ever

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

Simple, straightforward, long, and straight pavement trail ideal for a mindless walk/jog/bike ride. Gives you some elevation and though seems easy, it is a pretty decent workout. Does feel a little longer than it is, probably due to it being long, straight, and out&back.

I completed this trail about 5 times with my dog, and my dog had a tick the 5th time. FYI.

Very easy, but nice views of the park

Especially nice during spring and fall.

Love the view and the easy to walk around

Kinda hard to navigate I kept ending up on the road running path

Simply for the historic value... 25 yrs ago during a heat wave in the beginning of April. Two days later the heaviest snow storm of the year...

Beautiful, fun, great people-watching. Hill is challenging for running or cycling.

A great walk

Very cold this morning, but the hike was great. Lots of dogs out enjoying the snow. The start/finish is at the Museum of Natural History...so you can make a day of it by also exploring the museum before or after the hike.

This is my daily trail run! What I love most about this loop is its variety: beautiful trees and foliage, sweeping views of the lake and fields, a mix of ups and downs, and plenty of water fountains along the way. March / April is the best time of year to visit, when snow drops, daffodils and crocus bloom all along the path.

This is a simple and small neighborhood park with all kinds of people doing all kinds of things in the open space. What this park has going for it is that it’s on top of the slope, I believe the highest point in Brooklyn, where you have views of the city. Definitely a unique view. It is a fun pit stop on a biking tour but when you walk around, the elevation changes keep it interesting too.

A nice long loop, all paved with some incline. I wouldn’t call it an easy run.

I love running with the dogs here, it’s the closest to being in the woods you can get in Brooklyn!

Great place to walk the dogs. In the winter there is music from the ice skating rink!

Beautiful park and lots of activities to do.
Have seen the Belvedere castle , fountain and the boats lake.
