Head to the Hilly Fort Tryon Park

The name 'Manhattan' means 'Hill forest island.' The South end of the island where most tourists go is mostly flat while Central Park is where the hills begin. Only a few tourists ever make it as far as Fort Tryon Park, at the North end of Manhattan as it is very hilly up here.

Description

The name 'Manhattan' means 'Hill forest island.' The South end of the island where more tourists go is mostly flat. Central Park is where the hills begin. Few tourists ever make it as far as Fort Tryon Park, at the North end of Manhattan. It's very hilly up here. You will be glad that you are sitting down while I walk the stairs. 

We will look down cliffs on both the west and east sides! You will see tremendous views of the Hudson River and the New Jersey Palisades on the other side. It sweeps from the Hudson River, rising 25 stories, to absolutely stunning river valley views at the top. This is one of the few places in Manhattan where you can't see New York City.
This tour can be scheduled for the morning, when the Sun lights the New Jersey Palisades, or for late afternoon, so we finish at the very top at sunset.
