The linear park, 212 feet above the river, was created on an abandoned railroad bridge originally opened in 1889 as the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge and links to a rail trail on the Highland side. Walk, bike, or run across. Open 7 am to sunset. More than 500,000 people visit the walkway each year. A Path Through History attraction.
