3. Mosholu-Pelham Greenway in the Bronx

For a real workout, start at Van Cortlandt Park, and head south along the Mosholu Parkway bike path. Past the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden (currently closed) head due east along the East Coast Greenway. At the end of this approximately 12-mile journey, you’ll arrive at New York City’s largest park, Pelham Bay. Take in the quiet scenes, take a deep breath, and be thankful.
You can also check out historic finds in Pelham Bay, like the Bartow Pell Mansion Museum, notable sculptures, and the huge Orchard Beach. See more in our guide to Pelham Bay Park. Very soon, we will be doing a livestream tour of Pelham Bay Park for our Untapped New York Insiders, part of the virtual content they receive as members. Become a member to join in!
