If you are staying in or traveling through the Hudson Valley, don't pass up the chance to take a stroll across the Walkway over the Hudson.

We walked across on a winter day and it was beautiful. Quiet and peaceful even with many pedestrians and dog friends. It is the perfect way to spend an hour.

The walkway gives you a great view over the Hudson River and with the expansion of the trail on the Poughkeepsie side it makes for a great workout.

Beautiful views of the Hudson River, easy walk across but bring some water, it can get hot in the sun. Parking can be a hassle on the street.

A great walkway which was wide ,clean and had many places to read about the history of this place. The amazing views and the tree colours were a real treat and we especially liked listening to the goods trains as they tooted along beneath us.

An excellent opportunity to take a leisurely walk/ride across the Hudson River and maybe picnic along the way and enjoy the scenic views both north an south of the bridge.

The walkway is a great way to get a view of the river. I recommend parking down below in Waryas Park and then walking north along the river and taking the elevator up.

This is a walkway that you can walk, jog, run, or take your bicycle. Dog friendly also. On hot days there is water available and clean restrooms. It closes at dusk each night so make sure you have plenty of time. There is also a handicap elevator for those in need. One of my favorite spots.
