Walkway over the Hudson & Highland Rail Trail

{Note: This is a rescheduling of the event planned for October 6th and cancelled due to the weather)

We will be meeting at the Hudson Valley Rail Trail Depot. From there, we will walk about 2.5 miles to the Walkway Over the Hudson (the 1.3 mile pedestrian/bike bridge over the Hudson River, formerly the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge).

We will go to the end of the bridge, and back to our starting point. If there is interest, we can go to a restaurant on the Poughkeepsie side, or can instead go to the Ice Cream stand in Highland back closer to our starting point.

The rail trail & walkway are flat with almost no gain in elevation. The entire path is paved and it is an easy walk.

Hope to see you all there!

Note, this is the one on New Paltz road with the picnic tables outside. We are not meeting at the parking lot closest to the bridge, or at Tony Williams Park closer to New Paltz. If you feel that the whole walk may be too long for you, contact me when you RSVP and we can meet up with you at the bridge.

    Always good to meet up with friendly folks on a nature walk especially on a nice day.

    Maybe. Right now it's a Yes; however, life may 'happen' between now and then.
