Walkway Over The Hudson

The Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge has been converted into a pedestrian walkway. Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is a linear walkway spanning the Hudson River. At 212 feet tall and 1.28 miles long, it is the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.

On a beautiful fall morning it was the perfect place to take a walk and enjoy the spectacular water views and  changing leaves. In about two more weeks the foliage will be at its peak. Parking is $5.

I was  surprised by the large number of people that were walking on the bridge at 9:30 am. There were Mom's pushing strollers, couples sipping coffee, groups of joggers and dog walkers.

If you are ever in Poughkeepsie, I would recommend visiting the Walkway
