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.
