If this trail and Luther Forest were equidistant from home, I would choose Luther Forest almost every time.
I'm an early intermediate rider and prefer windy, flowing trails, which is what you can find at Luther Forest. Central Park is comparatively much slower with narrower paths, frequent switchbacks and climbs (though never very long ones), and more technical areas with roots catching my pedals several times. I also felt like I was losing my way with so many intersections throughout. Still, it's a nice place to build up your skill and test your endurance, and I will likely come back for that reason.
Beginners will probably not enjoy this trail very much, but If you like gritting out a ride, this is a good place and close by for many.
