Autumn is a time of change. The leaves are changing colors, the days are getting shorter, and you can feel that there is something in the air. Autumn provides some incredible opportunities to enjoy New York City at its most beautiful. In this blog post, we will discuss 5 places for autumn walks in New York City with helpful tips on what to see along the way!

Peninsula to Lookout Hill at Prospect Park, Brooklyn

Peninsula to Lookout Hill at Prospect Park, Brooklyn. This is one of my favorite Autumn walks in New York City because it offers so many different sights throughout the walk: a beautiful lake and reflections on its surface; views looking out across Manhattan with trees framing your view or a surprising vista just around another corner; the gentle sound of water flowing. The walk is also very short- only a little over a mile and takes about 20 minutes to complete.

The north side of New York City, stretching from 59th Street on the west to Tompkins Square Park in the east, offers many Autumn walks that are beautiful for different reasons. Some Autumn walks have more natural beauty, with views of tall trees and the sound of leaves rustling in the wind. Autumn walks on the north side offer a great contrast to those found near Central Park where you’ll find an abundance of man-made beauty: art installations, sculptures, old buildings converted into museums that are open to exploring for free or at a bargain price.

Blue Trail at Forest Park, Queens

Blue Trail at Forest Park, Queens. The Autumn walk in the Blue trail will take you through a variety of landscapes including fields with wildflowers, tree-lined streams and ponds, and an old forest that’s home to many different species of birds.

A very satisfying Autumn walk is one where it feels like there are surprises around every corner. One Autumn walk in New York City that provides this feeling is the Red Trail at Van Cortlandt Park, Bronx. This Autumn walk offers views of a historic mansion, surprising bridges over marshes and creeks, beautiful old trees with mossy branches.

Another one of my favorite Autumn walks in New York City takes you through some unexpected Autumnal beauty. Autumn walks on the south side of New York City, stretching from about 30th Street to Canal Street offer views of a completely different Autumn than those found in Central Park: leaves changing colors and trees shedding their last few leaves; remains of Hurricane Sandy that have been transformed into art installations by nature including driftwood turned into sculptures or old abandoned boats turned into benches.

Fort Tryon Park

The Autumn Walk in Fort Tryon Park, Manhattan has something for everyone: views of the city below with trees framing your view or a surprising vista just around another corner; an Autumnal forest that’s home to many different species of birds and migratory songbirds from Canada to Central America like Northern Cardinals, Autumn Leaf Gleaners, and Scarlet Tanagers; a bridge with views from both sides.

Clove Lakes Park Trail, Staten Island

The Clove Lakes Park Trail is an easy walk with just four miles of paths to explore. The park has a beautiful view and winding trails that will lead you through the woods, around lakes, or even over bridges. There are also plenty of benches for rest stops along the way!

The views from the trails of this park can’t be beaten. The winding paths will lead you through overgrown forests and around lakes before taking you to a lookout point on the highest point of the park. There are also plenty of benches for rest stops, and if you’re lucky enough to time it right, you might catch a glimpse of some wildlife in the woods!

Tulip Tree Trail at Alley Pond Park, Queens

The Tulip Tree trail is an amazing spot for an autumn walk. Autumn is the perfect time to admire the Autumn Colors of this deciduous tree.

The trail runs from Northern Boulevard south to Murray Avenue and passes by a couple of ponds with fish. – There are bird feeders scattered along the way for people who want to experience getting close up with some birds (but not too close) in their natural habitat.

The number of different bird species that can be seen varies depending on the time and day, but there are often some singing crows to keep an eye out for! There are also quite a few squirrels running around with their Autumn Red colorings.

It’s not too far from Alley Pond Park so it’s a nice, short Autumn walk.

The trail is about one mile long and mostly flat so it’s perfect for kids of all ages! There are benches along the way to take breaks too or just sit and enjoy the scenery.
