Walkway Over The Hudson | Highland - Poughkeepsie, NY

Well if you haven't made it up to the "Walkway" it's time! 

Our first time on the walkway really blew me away. It's beautiful!! I can't wait to spend many more days strolling and admiring the views of the Hudson River that I love so very much. It's a great place to clear your mind and remember the beautiful things in your life.

One of many informational signs along the walkway

Walkway info & links: 

Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world's longest, elevated pedestrian bridge! It's a converted abandoned railroad bridge spanning the Hudson River between Highland and Poughkeepsie, New York. The park is maintained by NYS Parks, and works with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation to keep it beautiful, YAY! (They do a wonderful job too) 

The park is open almost year round (weather permitting) from sunrise to sunset and hosts many seasonable events. We enjoy early morning walks and biking, but on a beautiful day you must linger and absorb the stunning views of the River. The Walkway is 1.28 miles long one way. There are bathrooms, food concessions, and ample parking on both sides.
