NYC: Central Park Hidden Gems Walking Tour

1. NYC: Central Park Hidden Gems Walking Tour

Avoid the tourist crowds and discover the hidden gems of Central Park with the help of a guide. Explore the rolling landscape to find serene areas and ravines in the less-trodden northern section of the park. Encounter one of the most surprising bird sanctuaries in the US, where you can look for robins, tufted woodpeckers or even a rare great horned owl or red-tailed hawk. Walk under Huddlestone Arch to emerge back into the sunlight and climb up to the historic military Bunker to get spectacular views of Harlem. Descend through North Woods to Harlem Meer, surrounded by willow, oak, beech and gingko trees. Skirt the lake and walk up a short flight of stairs to Nutters Battery overlooking north Manhattan. Discover the historic north/south route through the city at McGowan's Pass, and then breathe in the fragrance of roses and magnolia trees at Conservatory Garden.  Sit on a bench under a crabapple tree to discuss your adventure and plan the rest of your day in peace!

Fred Is a knowledgeable, articulate and friendly guide. He will entertain you with his his myriad of information. Enjoy but don't be in a rush. This is a treat!

Tour was good, exploring a part of the park I had not been. However it was not as described and the landmarks listed were not visited.

The guide was well informed and pleasant. It was an easy walk except for a short flight of stairs. It was really a fully guided tour.

We would highly this walking tour. Fred’s knowledge and obvious love of Central Park made it most enjoyable.
