Sometimes the most breath taking attractions and experiences are free! New York’s Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world’s longest, elevated pedestrian bridge, stretching 1.28 miles, 212 feet above the Hudson River. The panoramic views of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River from the Walkway are spectacular in any season.

Walk: The new Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park Elevator provides a direct connection from the Poughkeepsie waterfront to the Walkway State Historic Park bridge.  Check out the Walkway Gateway sign located in the Visitor Information area of the Poughkeepsie station!  Exit the train station at the Water Street exit. Walk North on Water Street until you see the gates to Upper Landing Park.  Use the elevator entrance at Upper Landing Park to make your way onto the bridge.  No more than a 15 minute walk!
