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.

I jog this trail twice a week. Its very manageable and the scenery never gets old.

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.

this is part of the West Side Greenway and we run it at least once a week. really great section with some Rock art, bathrooms and water at 145th, and access points at 181,168 (sort of), 155, 145, and 125 streets. it's right along the Hudson and features The Little Red Lighthouse just inder the George Washington Bridge.

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.

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.

It’s a great little trail for the city people hehe. It is nice and I enjoyed it.

great training area plenty of up and down hills

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

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.

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

Staten Island Greenbelt White Trail starting on Victory Blvd to Hylan Blvd and ending in great Kills park. This was a fun enjoyable 7 mile hike thru the Staten Island Greenbelt. The upper parts between Willowbrrok park, Latourette and the ravine are the most secuded and enjoyable of the White trail. The lower section are very close to roads so you will hear cars going by. You can continue another 1.5 miles to the very end of Great Kills park if you wanted to make this an 8.5 mile hike. We parked one car in Great Kills park and then drove to Willowbrook park to start our hike.

Nice ride and ties in with Riverside to Battery Park trail on bikes or hiking.

We picked a day when there was a festival so it was difficult to navigate but once in the park an enjoyable ride.

Great park for birding, especially during spring warbler migration.

Relaxing, fun and a great hike up close to the Hudson.

Biggest surprise was the collection of padlocks at mid-bridge. Then I read the NYC removes thousands of the "love-locks" at a time.

Perfect trail for running and bike.
No big steep hills (just one but not that steep) majority flat.
I was in Brooklyn and it was a great option instead go to Central Park as I'm used to.

fun ans easy
