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 run this trail three times a week, but out to go by the salt Marsh rather than up the hill. such a fun run!

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.

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!

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

The map on the app isn't accurate. There is alot of small side trails that branch off the bigger ones. It is small enough though that you wont get lost.

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...

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.

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

Wonderful park. Huge area, offering lots of walk options and activities. Especially beautiful in April when the cherry trees are blossoming. Great fountains.

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.

Great trail, great views, an urban gem for New Yorkers (I'm from MD). My only complaint is that a number of riders ignore the signs saying "go slow, be courteous" and ride like they are racing, some in packs. This would be ok if the trail were not so crowded. The trail is not terribly wide and often must accommodate walkers, strollers, etc and the bikers are going dangerously fast. This should not keep you from trying this trail, it is great, but be mindful of these racers.

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.
