An awesome place to go for a scenic walk, especially in the Fall. Keep your ears and eyes open for inconsiderate bikers. Starting on the Highland side makes for a shorter walk to the views. Consider doing the loop and a visit to Fanny Reese Park right next door.

I have walked this many times. Especially beautiful in the fall looking up the river framed by the gilded maples. Breathtaking. Free for now. Im sure NY will start charging eventually like they do with everything else. But worth the trip!

We tried this attraction as a little extra on a busy day. It is a FREE activity for anyone. As we walked on the bridge, we passed many children (all ages from infants in strollers to older teens on skateboards). People were on bikes as well as walking. The views from the bridge are awesome. You get a bird's eye view of a good portion of the Hudson River Valley and many surrounding towns and cities, all from high above.

I am not a person who likes heights, but I had no problem taking this trip across the Hudson. Try it, is really unique! Be aware that it does get very breezy as you get out into the middle section of the walkway.

An incredible trail to walk, run or bike over a defunct railroadbridge over the Hudson with sweping views of the river valley.

Great place to walk and view the Beautiful Hudson Valley. Also has good restaurants nearby.
Parking is also close. If you want to park VERY close, then you must pay a fee.
