This is an awesome place to visit while in Poughkeepsie!! It is about a 3 mile walk round trip but it does not feel like it. The view is wonderful. It is peaceful too. You can ride your bike, walk, run or skate across it!! I try to walk this bridge at least once a week-- since i live not too far.
They do have a small amount of food vendors and there are port a potties on either end of the walkway.
An elevator is being installed.
