On this walk the skyline isn’t broken by towering oaks, sycamore, or white pines, but by Lady Liberty, Columbus Monument, the Liberation Monument, and Manhattan skyscrapers. The route takes advantage of walkways, the nature path, the Interpretive Center, the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal, and especially the Liberty Walk. This hike takes us past the historic Morris Canal Basin, the world’s best view of Manhattan, a spectacular historic train shed and railroad terminal, views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, and the site of an infamous island munitions depot. The famous Morris Canal connected with the bay in the canal basin on the north side of the park here.
