A lot of hills at the start (gets your heart pumping!) and then it levels out with a few in/declines”

I trail run multiple times here a week and the conditions are almost always great, even in the wet weather. The trails drain very well and there isn't too many places that have slippery footing. One of the great things about this trail is that you can park at multiple places along the whole route and run different sections. There is also a series of loops off of the main white blaze trail in Stillwell Woods Park. The only thing to note is that mountain bikes are allowed in most of Stillwell Woods Park.
There is parking at either end of the trail, so if you want to go one way and have two cars you can park one car at each end and start at either point. I recommend starting at Cold Spring Harbor; there are a lot of steep climbs (a little rocky so watch your footing), and then the trail will level out a bit after the first road crossing. A nice five mile hike one way, or go back to your starting point for a good workout of 10 miles!
