Take you time, this can be a long walk if you have anyone with you that is elderly, handicapped or frail. On a sunny day without wind this is a very pleasant way to spend an hour or more. Enjoy the view of the Hudson River generally with either sailboats, ferry boats or barges.

So much fun to take in the beautiful sights! I prefer going early in the morning before it gets too crowded.

Happened to have crazy warm day in February and had spectacular afternoon walk back and forth. About 1.25 miles each direction on the bridge with trails far beyond available. Great river vistas, cool breeze and awesome people watching.

We unfortunately did not bring appropriate outerwear for an excursion to the middle but the temperature dropped at least 30 degrees overnight. We will come back in the warmer weather and try again. Well worth it for the spectacular views.

The Walkway over the Hudson is a great place to go for a non strenuous walk and take in some incredible views. It's family and dog friendly. There is food on either side of the walkway which you can purchase and eat at one of the many picnic benches or bring it with you on your walk and sit at... More

Beautiful well-maintained bridge spanning the Hudson from Poughkeepsie to Highland. I have an Empire pass so can park right at the beginning of the span on the Poughkeepsie end but there is plenty of parking in the surrounding neighborhood. Strategically placed benches if you need a rest. Interesting information posted along the way. Views of the Hudson like no other.... More

The walkway across the Hudson was a great place for an afternoon walk. We had a sunny day with a beautiful cool breeze. Finding the parking lot on the west side was a bit tricky and there was a cost to park. Don't miss the views if you are in the area.
