Walkway Over The Hudson
26 Reservoir Square
The WalkwayGreetings from 212 feet over the Hudson River! Since 2009, more than three million people have traversed, hiked, ran, cycled, and skated the 1.28-mile Walkway Over the Hudson, the world's longest elevated pedestrian bridge. Formerly the once-abandoned 1888 Poughkeepsie-Highland Memorial Bridge, it was the first railroad crossing over the Hudson River until a devastating fire in 1974 crippled it and later restored into the linear walkway and park complete with stunning views of the Hudson Valley. For a unique experience, ride the glass-enclosed, 21-story Walkway Elevator from the Poughkeepsie Waterfront to the top to begin your trek across.
