Central Park West from Columbus Circle to Summit Rock (in 2 parts)

Janes Walk

Led By Nancy DiFrancesco

This is a walk that will be in two parts on two different days, Friday and Sunday. Part 1 will be “Central Park West from Columbus Circle to the Majestic (at 72nd Street).” Part 2 will be “Central Park West from the Dakota (at 72nd Street) to Summit Rock inside Central Park.” The focus will be on the buildings but there will be some discussion of some elements of the Park. The terrain will be flat except for when we enter the Park to ascend Summit Rock which is the highest point in the park and which involves a fairly steep climb.


This walk is in two parts, both are approximately just a half mile long. The terrain for the first part is entirely flat as is the beginning of the second part. However, the very last part requires ascending Summit Rock in Central Park which does involve a fairly steep incline.

Location Information

RSVP is required and capacity is limited. Meeting location, ending location, and directions will be provided via email before walk date.
