Spectacular Walkway Over the Hudson/Octoberfest at River Station

Just as the leaves should be at their peak, we'll be meeting at River Station in Poughkeepsie, taking their free shuttle to the Walkway over the Hudson, then crossing the river while enjoying the spectacular views.
The park provides access to the Hudson River's breathtaking landscape for pedestrians, hikers, joggers, bicyclists, and people with disabilities. The bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river's surface and is 6,678 feet (1.28 miles) long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.
Following our round trip of around 2.5 miles over the river and back, we'll take the shuttle back to River Station where they are celebrating Octoberfest 2010 with a delightful collection of German specialties on the menu, along with their regular offerings.
Check out their menus!
They will also be featuring drink specials: DRINK SPECIALS: CLASSIC MARGARITAS $6, HEINEKEN $4, SALMON RUN GLASS $5 ALL DAY
This River Station is the oldest continually operated food, drink & catering facility in the city. Also the most affordable waterfront restaurant in Poughkeepsie & the only outdoor dining & glass enclosed dining rooms located between The Walkway Over The Hudson and the Mid-Hudson Bridge withstunning views of the valley and the bridges.
some of you who may want a longer walk can do a loop and return over the Mid-Hudson bridge to meet us at River Station. Check out the maps and the Loop Trail Brochure

    During the hike over the Hudson today, I lost a marcasite pin in the shape of an elephant. It is a very, very dear piece one of my best friends gave me a few years ago. I am devastated for losing it. If anyone found it, please email me either through this site. I cannot express how upset I am about this.

    With perfect weather, spectacular scenery, terrific people, Marvelous food, and tremendous service, how could we go wrong??? We definitely had a five star day...and judging from the comments, we'll definitely make this a semi-annual event at the very least...
