Where can you go for free, walk on flat ground and have a wonderful view? Walkway over the Hudson is the place. Kids had bikes, rollerblades and there were people just walking to see the beautiful view of the Hudson. This is a great place. It is within walking distance to places to eat or a short drive to the... More

The Walkway Over The Hudson is one of the great "go-to" sights in the Mid-Hudson region. Easily assessable and an amazing view up and down the Hudson River. For an extra walk- journey over both bridges: Take the Walkway, then the elevator down to river level, (a visual treat) then walk to and across the Mid-Hudson bridge back to your... More

I really loved the walk on the bridge where you can see the Hudson river. The view is very beautiful especially during sunset. The breeze from the river is cooling and nice. I would love to go back again if I have a chance.

The Walkway Over The Hudson is a wide, nicely-paved path popular with walkers, runners, casual cyclists, and serious cyclists who on a casual portion of a ride - at least we saw all of those types when we visited on a hot summer day. We started on the Poughkeepsie side along the water. There's a free elevator to the bridge,... More

Nothing negative to say about the experience. Fun, enjoyable walk with interesting information on the bridge, the river, and Poughkeepsie, posted on the fence line. Beautiful views of the river. Be sure to stop on the "selfie" spot. They did a real nice job on the surface. Comfortable place to walk, jog or ride your bike. Elevator available. I didn't... More

Lovely walk, but do it at a cool time of day or evening. Take plenty of water too. They actually listed the temperature of the pavement to prevent people from taking their pets on a hot day.
