The John Muir Nature Trail (established in 1997) is Van Cortlandt’s only east–west path, traversing the steep terrain at the park’s center. 

Our Urban Park Ranger hiking guides will introduce you to the hidden gems of New York City. On our hikes, you may explore nature, discover our city’s urban forests, or just unplug from the world to clear your head.

Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths) to moderate (longer, faster-paced hikes on rugged terrain) to vigorous (long distance, with hills and rugged terrain).
