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

Very easy path to follow with plenty of places to stop, sit and enjoy. Now that the weather is warming up there are plenty of people on the High Line, and when we walked the High Line the crowd was huge, yet the noise was minimal. There are also a handful of food/drink stations along the way as well as a couple of gift shop kiosks and a few street vendors. I suggest you take your time, enjoy the quietness and beautiful landscape.

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

It’s cool because it’s unique - you’re above the city! That said it’s also usually very crowded and not super green or spacious - it’s pretty narrow. Has some cool sunbathing chaise-lounges that you can chill in on the way, plus a lot of cool sculptures! ☺️

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

The Loop is back! The breach has been repaired. Go here periodically for a quick get away, nice hike with many options for a short to long walk

Cute short little trail above all of the madness below. Nice views! Beautifully landscaped.

Enjoy!

Especially nice during spring and fall.

Great for bird watching.

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...

Excellent, easy, fairly long walk or jog. Beautiful and quiet . NYC did a great job of creating a place for everyone to enjoy.

Walked it in the winter, when crowds were light. Can only imagine how crowded it gets in good weather. Nice way to get down to the Meatpacking District from the West Side. Tons of construction along the first part of the walk.

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.
