Details

A former railroad bridge built in 1888, the Walkway spans 1.26 miles and stretches 212 feet above the majestic Hudson River. It's the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. Enjoy a magnificent birds' eye view of the Hudson, Catskill Mountains and adjacent landscape. It's ideal for walkers, joggers, cyclists and rollerbladers. No skateboards or motorized vehicles are allowed. A small number of bikes are available to rent. From the Poughkeepsie train station, it's a 15-minute walk to the stairs at Washington Street and a five-minute walk to Upper Landing Park on the waterfront, where you can ride the glass elevator up to the deck. The elevator is closed January to April. Call ahead to check if the elevator is open. This location is part of the Dutchess Tourism Zen Finder Outdoor Experience Trail, which can be found here: https://dutchesstourism.com/zen-finder.
