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 above the Hudson River's surface and is 1.30 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 2.60 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 if you'd like which would make your walk 1.30 miles. Or, you may go down it and back to get picked up at the same spot you were dropped off for the full 2.60 miles. It's completely your choice! Regardless, you'll love the views of the Hudson Valley! 

*The Walkway Over the Hudson is part of and linked directly to the Hudson Valley Rail Trail (23 miles of beautifully paved trail). Rental bikes are available upon request if you'd like to bike it.
