Inside Central Park and Hudson River Bike Tour

Travel on two wheels, and enjoy the fresh air, when you go on a small-group bike tour of the West Side of Manhattan. Find your guide in the morning at Pier 78, just adjacent to the Lincoln Tunnel, where you’ll pick up your bike and head out. Coast along the Hudson River Greenway, and admire the riverside and skyline views as you go. You’ll glide past landmarks like the High Line, will explore Chelsea and the South Street Seaport, and more.

A beautiful place for a walk. We parked down by the round-a-bout & walked to the top. A moderate and picturesque hike. The grounds are beautiful & the perfect place to bring your dog. The historic site was closed when we visited, but it's super fun to admire the outside.

My Fiancé & I came on, Saturday, April 3, 2021. We just got engaged day before. My Fiancé had been to Olana as a young teen. It made quite an impression on him. He’s talked about going back with me, since summer of 2020. There is deep reasons as to why, so it meant so much to him for this experience. As we entered the ticket building, the girl there was FANTASTIC!!!! She began our experience wonderfully. We learned that the castle was closed, but everything else was open. I was passionate on getting some souvenirs for the meaning behind this experience for my Fiancé & I. Especially, just getting engaged the day before. We went to the store. Upon entering, the girl behind the counter says, sanitize your hands first. I’ve had 28 surgeries. I currently don’t have an immune system, so I’m more than willing to sanitize. However, I have extreme health issues, one being fragrances trigger my immune system to attack my organs. So I kindly asked what brand was the sanitizer. She responded quite snotty, I don’t know, I just know you have to use it to enter. I said ok, & explained the reason for the questions. She looked in cabinet & stated the brand. Ok. And we use it kindly. I asked about sweatshirts, t-shirts, etc. no, we don’t have anything like that. All to which she didn’t even look at us, nor, offer to come around the counter to help us. She was very busy doing her thing. Her tone was rude. I felt that we were more of a bother. We looked around. I came back to counter, again, no eye contact whatsoever. Do you have anything that says Olana? Yeah, some magnets & postcards. Ok, thank you. She didn’t offer to show me where. Again, just continuing to do her thing. It was absolutely disheartening & maddening to be treated in this manner, especially with such a heartfelt & passionate reasons to be attending here.

Olana offers tons of trails and great views wherever you venture to, and is a short drive from the main part of town. No fee to get into the park, and guided tours are available. The park would benefit from clearer/larger signs in regards to parking and navigating the paths, but overall a nice stop you can spend minutes or hours at!

We were there on a very cold, snowy weekend and the house was open but wow, worth the drive up and a walk around the house for the views of the Hudson and to see the detail of the gorgeous home from the outside. Cannot wait to return and see the inside when it reopens! (They have a great gift shop too!)

Wonderful winter visit. We parked by the farm at the bottom of the hill and walked up to the house. It is a steep walk but the gravel path is wide and clear. The views at the top are beautiful. The visitor center is closed and there are no tours of the house because of COVID. Restrooms are available. Everyone we saw was wearing a mask. It was not crowded. I would love to come back in warm weather when the gardens are in bloom and on a clear day when we could see farther into the distance. But the cold and the clouds did not take away from how much we enjoyed our time there
