Thirteen miles of preserved parkland offer biking, running, hiking, and walking paths with spectacular views of New York--just minutes from it. Accessible by car or cycle from the top of the island by crossing the George Washington Bridge to the Eastern shore of northern New Jersey. The Palisades Parkway, a forty-two mile scenic route north from Manhattan, offers a lovely drive through this park that Lawrence Rockefeller preserved as a way to introduce the concept of land conversation in America, to another wonderful hiking spot, Bear Mountain.
