About the Walkway Over the Hudson (the longest, highest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world)
The Walkway Over the Hudson provides access to the Hudson River's breathtaking landscape for pedestrians, hikers, joggers and bicyclists. Feel free to take a stroll at your leisure or even rent a bike (must reserve beforehand with us). The bridge deck stands 212 feet (.06 km) above the Hudson River's surface and is 1.28 miles (2.06 km) long, therefore making it the longest, highest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world! So, to go across it and back round trip is 2.56 miles. It is a paved flat surface so it's perfect for anyone. Be sure to take pictures to capture the beautiful landscape! The Walkway is open everyday from dawn to dusk and is easily self-guided. You may choose to go across and get picked up on the other side. Or, you may go down it and back to get picked up at the same spot you were dropped off. It's completely your choice. Regardless, you'll love the views of the Hudson Valley!
