Run through undeveloped “prehistoric” wilderness within easy access of public transport and some tough elevation gain.

This relatively untouched, hilly park features forest, valleys, and a salt marsh – if you're lucky, you may even spot a bald eagle. A great way to run the park is simply explore the maze of trails. It is easy to lengthen your run by taking a few laps through the park, or by continuing on to the Fort Tryon Park, next door (home to the Cloisters museum).

For a particularly intensive workout through the park's interior, with lots of elevation gain, enter the park near the intersection of Seaman Avenue and Isham Street. Continue straight into the park, then loop around the small outcropping, along the Spuyten Duyvil Creek. Next head west, towards the Hudson River, where you will take a number of intensive laps before returning to where you started.

Please be aware that due to its remote location, it is best to visit this park with fellow runners with plenty of daylight, as there have been reported crimes in this area.

See here for a map of this route. Note that trails are in the best condition during fall and winter.
