Spectacular Walkway Over the Hudson/Dinner at River Station

Just as the spring  should be fully sprung, we'll be meeting at River Station  in Poughkeepsie for our semi-annual event, taking their free shuttle to the Walkway over the Hudson, then crossing the river while enjoying the spectacular views.

When we walked it in October, we had a fabulous day!!!  Check out the comments and pictures at:

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, off of Main Street/right behind Mahoney's Pub and Pkpse train station, which has a fabulous and reasonably priced menu.
Check out their menus!

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 themaps and the Loop Trail Brochure
