This was a fun hike. I still prefer walking along 5th Avenue or along CPW though.

The Central Park Bridle Path ride is on many folks bucket list because it is a beautiful horseback ride on a historic trail and it is still accessible to riders today, although they must find parking outside of the park for their horse trailer. Horses continue to have the right of way on the Bridle Path and parks goers should know to stand aside when they see horses there, to allow them to pass safely by.

The Central Park Bridal Path ride was a piece if haven in the middle of the hustle and bustle of NYC, amazing! The thing is that it is exactly as it is called, Bridle Path not a runners path, so when there are horse there please respect them and yes they shit, get over it so do you!
