Hiking Like a Real New Yorker in Central Park
On a crisp, clear afternoon you stumble across a sparkling stream and a small bubbling waterfall. It’s a peaceful and introspective scene, like your very own Shangri-la. Surprisingly though, it’s also smack dab in one of world’s most vibrant cities. The Ravine in the North Woods of Central Park is your ticket to natural bliss in the heart of the city. Head deep into the 90-acre North Woods urban jungle for a hike that will completely change your perception of New York City. To get here enter at West 100th Street and Central Park West, walk north toward the Pool, and keep an eye out for the Glen Span Arch. This is where your adventure begins. Bring a good map, a bottle of water, and a friend. Or better yet, maybe two friends. You’re still in New York after all.
