  • Rockefeller Park preserve loop, about 7 miles. I started before 9am on 2/5/2022. Lots of ice on the trails, but doable if you go slow. It would have been better with spikes. I used the All trails map along the way but the trail is mostly clearly marked. Overall an easy trail with some nice views!
  • Beautiful outdoor reserve. Great for walkers and hikers. The air was so crisp and fresh. The beauty of the colors will force of to reflect on the CREATOR for such gifts.
