Unbelievable view of the Hudson River - You must do this!

If you are in the area, you must take this walk. So well worth the stop - I have done this walk in the fall, winter and now spring.... it never disappoints.

Join the thousands who have come to the walkway because it was new and now return every chance they can! Breathe taking views of the river and the shorelines - and the sky above! Nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

The Walkway is great. It offers terrific views of the Hudson River and great exercise. Parking lot to parking lot round trip is a 3 miles.

We had some time to kill while visiting the area and enjoyed our 40 minute walk across the Hudson. The weather was fantastic and the views were breathtaking. The only challenge is the folks that are on the bicycles make it a little nerve racking when they come from behind.

Although our time at the Walkway was short and the weather a bit cool, we very much enjoyed our visit to this fine attraction. It's a simple, flat path across the Hudson River, affording splendid views in both directions. It can be enjoyed by young and old alike, and it's free! Having walked along a path by the River, we...

Was down visiting SUNY New Paltz and decided to check out things to do in the area. It was a nice clear day so the views were great. Fun to watch the other people walking, riding bikes and jogging.

The Walkway over the Hudson is a fantastic walk on an old railroad bridge over the Hudson River. You can access it from either the Poughkeepsie side or the Highland side...the latter being the easiest to park.

We had a beautiful day to walk back and forth over the Hudson. We parked on the Poughkeepsie side of the bridge and enjoyed the views. The only downside was that we needed to be careful not to step in what dog owners left behind. The Parks Dept supplied bags for owners to pick up after their pets but many... More

A brisk 30 to 45 min. walk across the Hudson, make sure the weather is nice so that you can mingle and people watch...Interesting interaction if you are into that. Allow for at least a two hour adventure, parking can be a little hectic but worth the trouble.

Just beautiful views from this walkway. We took my Mother in a wheelchair while visiting my son at college. It is wheelchair accessible and a great activity to do for all ages. You can pace yourself and stop along the way if needed. There were lots of families enjoying the day.
