Lonely Planet review

This 197-acre park contains the last natural forest and salt marsh in Manhattan. It’s a cool escape in summer and a great place to explore any time, as you’ll find hilly paths for hiking and mellow, grassy patches and benches for quiet contemplation. It’s so bucolic, in fact, that the treetops serve as frequent nesting sites for bald eagles.

Let your sporty side rip on basketball courts, horseback-riding trails, and soccer and football fields; you can also join locals who barbecue at designated grills on summer weekends. At the time of research, the information-packed Inwood Hill Nature Center remained closed due to damage from Hurricane Sandy.
