Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons in upstate New York. The rolling hills and mountains are covered with a spectacular display of colors as the trees change for the fall.

-You will start your day with the beautiful train ride on Metro North from Grand Central alongside the Hudson. Along the way you will be treated to spectacular views of the Hudson Valley. You may also drive or meet the group there if you live north of the city. Please contact [masked] to make arrangements.
-Your guide will meet you in Poughkeepsie then bring you to the newly opened Walkway over the Hudson ( upstate's version of the Highline!). It is an old freight train bridge that stretches across the river that is now a park!
-From there we will head to Slabsides for a relaxing hike and lunch. Please note that this is a moderate hike, there are some steep inclines but in the form of rock steps. The hike is about 90 minutes.
