Need to Know

Even thought this is one way (counter-clock) loop, there is a lot of folks walking and running in other direction. There is several places of interest on the way. I would recommend read any tourist guide for visitors in New York. Lot of good tips for runners at Central Park Conservancy website.https://www.centralparknyc.org/activities/guides/running#:~:text=The%20longest%20loop%20in%20the,horses%20(yes%2C%20really!).

Description

This is east half of 6.2 miles longest Central Park Loop. Whole trail goes along wide asphalt paved road with designated lanes for bikers and runners. It starts at Columbus Circle with convenient access to subway station. Trail consist several sections of long inclines/declines and one very flat and straight part along Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir between 86th and 96th streets. Then it drops from 105th street along Harlem Meer with lowest point of whole trail. After that it starts climbing more and more steep towards West Side all the way to 108th street where it ends.
