This is a must...alone, with a date, with a group, with multigenerational family, with out-of-town visitors. Unique and fun adventure. Free. Bring water, sneakers and a hat. And you will want to take a zillion photos.

The Walkway over the Hudson was an awesome experience. The 1.2 mile walk on the bridge gave an opportunity for great views of the Hudson River (north and south) and of the Mid-Hudson Bridge. It was an easy hike on the paths and our dog enjoyed it too. I recommend to bring water for your dog although there was some... More

Amazing views very high above the Hudson. Great for walkers, bicyclists, pets. We parked in a dirt lot off of Parker Street for no charge. It is not necessary to pay to park.

The bridge walk is 20 min from the Poughkeepsie train station and an hour and half round trip with time to read signs and take photos. It has a great view of the Hudson Valley

Glorious view, especially of the fall foliage during that time of year. If you're a cyclist or a runner, this is a lovely place to exercise also! Tourists, you've got to see this at least once. The height of this walkway is impressive and for a photographer, the skyline, sunsets, and river activity are excellent subjects, as is the wildlife.

Great place for a walk or short run, the walkway is about 1.2 miles long. It can get windy and cold so bring a sweater or coat depending on the season. It can get pretty crowded, and there is an elevator that takes visitors to the water front.

We live on the Poughkeepsie side but love to drive to Highland and walk the bridge on early Saturday and/ or Sunday mornings! We love to get outdoors and the walkway is safe, clean, and the people/dog watching can be fun too. Also it is wonderful to watch the subtle seasonal changes throughout the year as it effects the river... More

If you like scenery and want to enjoy a stroll, job, bike ride, etc., the Walkway is fantastic. Be aware that hot summer days can be tough for dogs, so maybe leave the pups at home for midday or hot day walks.
