The Gill is the main stream that bisects
the Ramble from its source at 77th Street
just east of Azalea Pond and travels down
the rocky slope of the Gorge where it trickles
beneath Gill Bridge 21 into the Lake.
Following the path of the Gill is the true
adventure of the Central Park Ramble.
With its circuitous route over a rocky rustic
terrain it unveils to the traveler a unique
habitat embodying the romance of nature
and the excitement of the City skyline,
which is never far from view.
Yet here in the Ramble wandering along the
edge of the Gill it is easy to forget that a city
exists beyond its waters.
With the rushing sound of three cascades
along the way from its source at a high
grouping of bedrock mass to the Gorge
where the stream drapes the edges of a
steep rocky incline it is a magical path
through a magical wilderness.
