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

Pretty trail leading from the nature trail, through a grassland with wildflowers and a salt marsh

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

A great walk

Very easy four and a half miles...give or take. There wasn't a lot of wildlife this go around. I'll have to go back later in the spring. With the government shutdown... the visitor's center was not open, which is always a shame. Children in Congress making decisions that have impacts that are far reaching. Regardless. It's only about an hour or so train ride from mid-town (A train). so you can leave at 9am and be on the trail before 11. It's close enough that after the hike, you can take the shuttle train to Rockaway and enjoy some beach time.

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.

Great escape from city. Even though you are right in the middle of it being elevated makes it seem like you are on a different planet at time. Very clean and everyone seems friendly on there. Start and finish in Chelsea so you can visit the indoor market of the Food Network.

Great City views while walking a beautifully landscaped trail.

Love this walk. You get to see the city feom a different perspective. Just wish there was less construction.

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.

Beautiful woods and river view.

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!
