It's not a trail but a Boardwalk in the center of the bridge, elevated above the roadway, with spectacular 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline. There are always lots of breezes over the river, and harbor landmarks -- including the Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island Ferry, and three more bridges -- are in plain view. Half the boardwalk is reserved for bikers, who have made the bridge their favorite ride. The Manhattan end of the bridge is convenient to Chinatown and the Brooklyn end offers the beautifully historic Brooklyn Heights and the amazingly trendy DUMBO -- all neighborhoods with lots of dining and sight-seeing possibilities. Make a half day tour of it on foot, or rent bikes and spend a day exploring Brooklyn.
