Great walk over the river on the repurposed railroad bridge. The weather was good (although over there high above the river the wind was blowing hard) the views are great you can see far up and down the river. We were passing through Poughkeepsie and this was like an added bonus to our trip.

Pleasant Walk With eA Nice View. Don't know if it was worth the two hour trip. We probably could have found nice views of the Hudson River closer to home. We were hoping to see some nice fall foliage. Leaves were changing but not quit peek. Walkway on a Thursday morning was not crowed and it was easy to social distance. Most people were wearing masks. A problem was that there were no restrooms and after a two hour ride and walk across the bridge needed one. Another problem was that we we had hard time finding a restaurant with outdoor dinning. We drove around and were about to give up when we drove past the Mill House which was setup very nicely with a tent for outdoor dinning.

We did this on a nice weekend day. Lots of other people had the same idea, so it was a bit crowded... since this is during COVID, I would estimate that there was about 80% mask wearing, so thats not too bad, we also wore masks during the entire walk. We approached from the east side of the river in Poughkeepsie - there is limited parking. Furthermore, it looked like they blocked every other spot due to COVID, perhaps to try to cut down on the crowds.... not sure, anyways, we ended up parking in the neighborhood, which a lot of people were doing... the neighborhood seems "ok" and there was a few restaurants nearby. Im wondering if maybe its a bit better to park on the West side of the attraction, but not sure on that. We walked from east to west and back, it took about 90 minutes at a leisurely pace. On the west side, there is a gift shop, some restrooms and a few food concessions. It gives some good views of the river, you can watch boats and trains pass by, a fun activity for when the weather is nice.

Beautiful walkway that is accessible from either side of the river. Wide enough for walkers and bikers to feel safely distanced. The view was beautiful and the area was very clean and safe.

Great way to spend some time, a couple hours if you take it leisurely or shorter if you're doing this for the exercise. Beautiful vistas of the Hudson River, Poughkeepsie, the Mid-Hudson bridge, the mountains and general scenery around. We loved the walk across the river!
