A fabulous run with water and skyline views. It’s about 4 miles around the perimeter, with parks on each end. To access the island by foot you have to cross the Queensboro Bridge over the island to Queens and then double back — about 1.6 miles. More direct access is via tram or subway. The guide below has more details on access and running/walking options.
