First off, locals refer to this as the "Newburgh-Beacon Bridge"! Nobody I know, including the New York State Bridge Authority and Department of Transportation, calls it the "Hamilton Fish Bridge". If you are from out of town and ask, "how do I get to the Hamilton Fish Bridge?” more likely than not that person will have no idea what you... More

3 miles roundtrip, and it's a big hill. Lot's of wind the whole way, but beautiful views. Noisy, though!

Picturesque views while walking, running or riding a bike. It is very soothing to be near the water. Walkway shakes a little during high traffic. No dogs allowed.

Yes there is a walkway with nice views, however, you're better off driving up to The Walkway Over the Hudson where it's closed to traffic and has beautiful views and it is quiet.

Nice bridge with even nicer views of the Hudson River. Whether on the Newburgh (Orange County) or Beacon (Dutchess County), nice walkway to travel between the two counties. Usually never crowded and at $1.50, its the cheapest way to cross the Hudson........

Great walk with beautiful views. The drawback is the traffic noise. Very loud. And the bridge is named for a politician.

I cross this bridge pretty often. Although, I don't believe it's called the Hamilton Fish Bridge--it's the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge; Hamilton Fish was the engineer. It offers a pretty nice view of Storm King, Pollepel Island (where Bannerman's Castle is), and Breakneck Ridge to the south (but not much to the north). Worth a traverse.

Tolls are the lowest north of NYC when compared to the outrageous tolls of the Tappan Zee and George Washington bridges and other tunnels closer to NYC. Traveling from northern NY State or OHIO and PA this bridge costs $1.25. Because this is a heavily traveled bridge accidents do happen. Checking traffic reports within an hour of approaching the bridge... More
