Route by Riverside Park Conservancy
The Hudson River greenways have something for everyone—from families to the most competitive cyclists. This heavily trafficked, protected route starts at the southernmost tip of Manhattan and travels up the west side to the GW Bridge. The greenway features fabulous esplanades for walking, cycling and running with beautiful views of the river and New Jersey skyline. Along the route you will experience some of Manhattan’s most iconic downtown attractions ranging from The Battery and Freedom Tower to the The Whitney Museum and the newly built Little Island. Grab a snack at Chelsea Market before heading north along the activity-filled piers to the Intrepid Museum. Enjoy a relaxing afternoon of sunbathing, activities and bird watching in Riverside Park. End your ride with a selfie at the The Little Red Lighthouse and a detour to Sugar Hill Creamery in Harlem.
This segment is part of the East Coast Greenway, a walking and biking route stretching 3,000 miles from Maine to Florida. Check out their work and plan a longer trip on their website.
Riverside Park Conservancy restores, maintains, and improves Riverside Park in partnership with the City of New York. They support the preservation of the park’s historic landscape, structures, and monuments, engage the community in active stewardship of the park, and provide a wide range of public programs.
