It's time to return to "The Walkway Over the Hudson" and this time, we've added on the Mid-Hudson Bridge to complete the loop and experience the unique sounds of Bridge Music!! (check out bridge music at http://josephbertolozzi.com/bridge-music-2/
This will be about a 2 1/2 - 3 hour walk, (approx. 3.6 miles) on paved, mostly level roads, after the initial moderate inclined, walk to the park, of about 20 minutes. Good, supportive sneakers or walking shoes should suffice, but hiking shoes or boots, are also an option. The restaurant provides a free shuttle to and from the bridge, for those who need it, or want to cut about 20-25 minutes, off the entire walk. The walk will be at a moderate pace and is not a stroll, though we will take plenty of breaks, to enjoy the views and history.
CARPOOL OPTION: PLEASE POST IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DRIVING FOR THE CARPOOL and make your arrangements. ONe option is to MEET AT 12:45 AT STOP & SHOP, ON ROUTE 202 IN POMONA, NY. It's about an hour and fifteen minute drive. FOR THOSE NOT CARPOOLING, meet at 2:30 on N.Water St. at the upper parking lot of The River Station Restaurant, where we'll later enjoy a great sunset dinner.
