Really well kept, easy, nature walk.

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!

Flat gravel walking/running and biking trail that is quite busy. I walk the dogs and they enjoy it, not much to view but a nice walk nonetheless

This trail is deceiving. The rim trail with the steps is more difficult than expected. Be careful of the terrain, it has a lot of roots and loose gravel

Nice nature trail. I like the distance, not too long, not too short. The end of the trail is worth it for the nice view!

Great hike. But when we got to top it was freezing raining out and cloudy. We couldn't see anything.

Was a nice hike. Would go back up in warmer weather when the waterfall isn't frozen.

Hiked mountain on easter sunday. Loved the view and would like to hike again when all the snow and ice is gone.

Nice hike. Great view if you can get around the picnic eating folks with their many dogs. So many dogs.

Lovely and easy

The west/southwest part of this trail is non-existent. Literally. We found it but only because there’s no foliage in the undergrowth. If there were, it’d be unfindable.

You can string together a bunch of good sections - but be warned: you’re not going to do this ‘kite’ loop unless you’re prepared to break out your Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass.

Day hike. Nice climb to start, was a clear day, NYC skyline in full view. Easy downhill on well maintained trail steps. Great views of Bear Mountain Bridge and the Hudson Valley.

Nice hike, but the trails are pretty confusing. Glad I read previous reviews so I was prepared!

Great hike if you’re local. View was alright

The full loop to the lake view, around the rookery and to the ridge was about 3.5 miles. The red trail is steep at the end. Took us about 2 hours, stopping to take a bunch of pictures.

Nice walk / short hike worth the stop.

If your looking for a hike it's not worth the stop unless your driving through the area. It's more of a small walking trail at best. There is a nice park and picnic area.

This is one of my favorite gorges to hike. The only downside (as someone who likes hiking in peace) is that this location is a popular family spot in the summer time. It's absolutely gorgeous though!

When I lived in Rochester, this was one of my favorite places to go walk. Sometimes, I'd walk out to the Abbott's in Bushnell's Basin and back!

Great hike. Good climb.

This is a beautiful walk. The dogs had a great time too.
Finding the trail head is difficult. It is before the towers.
Also the trail is washed out big time in one area. New signage needs to go up. By the ravine it is a bit confusing but we finally found the orange and got back on track.
A good walk, definitely a moderate + hike.

Love Forest Park. Its a great place to spend a day, have a picnic and let kids explore the wooded areas. Great for birthday party's.

Great hike! The weather was perfect. A little overgrown in spots but not too bad. Dogs loved it! Will be coming back!

Lovely surprise to find the trail path wide so no worry about ticks. Started at the Mashashamuet Park area, parking on Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike side of the park near the playground. Lots of turnoffs available to futher explore the different lakes. I walked the RR path to the end and back. Took about 2 hours total.

Still plenty of ice near the top. Great views!

Feeding the birds sunflower seeds is the sweetest way to enjoy this park’s trails. A few seeds in the outstretched palm of your hand and, if you remain still, a chickadee will alight onto your hand and nibble away. Kids love it!

The drive up was a little scary— make sure your brakes are good for the drive down!!

Path started wide, then narrowed to be more vegetated (in a good way). There is also a stream to cross. Lots of room at the top and the views are gorgeous!

Perfect leisurely hike with great views. Good for kids and dogs.
