Remember that Riverside Park isn’t just that stretch of parkland alongside Rverside Drive. It’s also that area which borders the Hudson River deep within.
Also note what we’ve always mentioned: What goes down, must come back up. Venturing deep within certain parts of the park means going down a steep incline in some areas. Thus, be prepared to hike back all the way up to the street level.
