With its rocky incline and rushing cascade
the Gorge provides the Gill’s final descent to
the Lake. Aside from the opportunity for the
best climb in Central Park the summit of the Gorge
also provides an incredible view of all it oversees.
For many the Gorge all but defines the Ramble with its true wilderness atmosphere including a
high Overpass and the cascading Gill which
passes beneath it with a rush of sound that
makes any visitor to the Park look down and
around at the surrounding trees and hanging
foliage in awe.
A Central Park visitor walking north from the Rustic
Shelter along the path which runs parallel to the Lake will first pass Gill
Bridge 22 which leads to a
small pool fed by the Gill. If they continue north
along the same path they will be surprised at
the sudden appearance of the Overpass and
the descending Gorge to their left.
