It, as the name implies, is a walkway over the Hudson River. Old converted railroad bridge. I have done this a couple of times.
You can park on either side of the river however I have only ever parked on the west side and walked...More
Not for those afraid of heights. Cross the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, along an old one-and-a-quarter mile railroad bridge, more than 200 feet above the water. Part of a 13-mile rail trail, connecting to other trails. Parking on the west side of the river close...More
Well-maintained. Nice view. If I were local I would enjoy walking or running this on a regular basis. But if I was visiting (like we were) - I think there must be better tourist attractions. There were some interesting displays explaining the history of the...More
Saving this old railway bridge to create the Walkway over the Hudson was an ingenious idea. I'd avoid in extreme cold or heat, but otherwise, there isn't really a bad time to visit. We were there just after peak foliage, and still found the views...More
Weather was perfect in early November. Views from both sides of the walkway were outstanding. Large number of visitors walking and bike riding onthis hidden jam in the beautiful Hudson Will definitely go back and highly recommend to others.
After visiting the FDR home and museum, and having lunch at the Culinary Institute of America, we went to the Walkway Over the Hudson. All were just minutes from each other. My daughter and I couldn't make it all the way over the bridge (next...More
Parked in parking on Parker Ave. Brought bikes and was on the walkway in no time. Beautiful views of both sides of Hudson, Poughkeepsie, Highland and Mid-Hudson bridge. Also rode several miles on rail trail toward Hopewell Junction. Awesome bike trail, paved, well marked with...More
My dad had read that this this was a must-see for the Hudson River Valley. As we crossed the bridge, it was clear where the bridge was. However, for this being arguably the largest tourist attraction In Poughkeepsie, there was AWFUL signage. Our GPS kept...More
I live in the area and hadn't gone on the walkway until this year.... beautiful stunning views are only to outdone by the phenomenal places to eat super nearby.... walk, ride, jog...you choose but get there and you won't be disappointed
Great venue to get...More
While traveling through we stopped in to check it out, well worth the visit. The walkway is an old railroad bridge over the Hudson river. After a fire in the 70s is was taken out of rail service and later converted to a Historic Park...More
if you Google it it'll show you exactly where the parking lot is at the beginning of the bridge on the Poughkeepsie side, it is just outside of the downtown area there in Poughkeepsie. Yes there is an elevator, but parking... More
if you Google it it'll show you exactly where the parking lot is at the beginning of the bridge on the Poughkeepsie side, it is just outside of the downtown area there in Poughkeepsie. Yes there is an elevator, but parking lot on the Poughkeepsie side is at Bridge level so you won't need one.
