“Rail Trail Complete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Now that the Dutchess County Rail Trail is complete, you can ride all the way from Hopewell Jct. to the Walkway. Be VERY CAREFUL riding on the Walkway.

“Walk, Run Rollerblade or Bikeride with a Million Dollar View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

What a great place to go by yourself to relax & breath in fresh air or maybe your thinking of something the children will love to do. Put the bikes in the car and ride over to the Bridge.

A beautiful NY State Park 200 feet in the air with unbelievable views of the Hudson River. If your lucky and time it right (almost every 50 minutes) you can listen to a giant Steam engine freight train blow its whistle as it approaches the bridge on the tracks below pulling 60 to 80 freight cars of cargo along the water front; a magnificent sight & sound.

Perhaps you want to take a romantic stroll, the views are fantastic. Whatever you decide make sure the walkway over the Hudson is definitely on your bucket list. Enjoy

“A magnificent achievement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Wonderful views of the Hudson River and surrounding areas. Great for strolling and people watching. Now that the rail trails on both sides of the river are connected, a great place for scenic bike rides.

“Awesome view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

One of the reasons that drew me to live in Poughkeepsie was the development of the Walkway. I watched it from when they started tearing up the old rail bed, all the way through to its Grand Opening. I often walk or bike it, and love that it is now connected to the Dutchess Rail Trail! I love the ride all the way to Hopewell Junction train station, Daddy-O's, and back, and also enjoy the Hudson Valley Rail Trail across the river. I am hopeful that eventually the HVRT will continue even farther, making the Walkway an awesome link in one of New York State's most beautiful region. I go on the Walkway in all seasons and love seeing the changes in the surrounding countryside. Even in the winter it is a beautiful place to enjoy.
