Walkway Over the Hudson Two Bridge Loop & Sunset Dinner!

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. 

PLEASE BRING CASH TO MAKE CHECKOUT FASTER AND EASIER FOR EVERYONE.  THANKS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.  SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM LINK FOR MORE DETAILS.

PARKING OPTIONS: The Riverstations two lots, one on N.Water and one on Main, behind the restaurant. There is also The Waryus Park lot, on N.Water st. next to the River stations lot.  There are also other parking options available,that can be found, on the Walkway Over the Hudson sites' map. The train station is about a block from the restaurant, for those interested in public transportation.

Let's enjoy some breathtaking views of the Hudson River, a little history and numerous great photo opts! After we'll share  a delicious dinner, overlooking the Hudson and setting sun, a perfect end, to another special journey!

Directions to the restaurant and info about the park, can be found at the sites below. This event is limited to 40 people so sign up soon! http://www.riverstationrest.com/

    Great walk and the weather cooperated to perfection. I had imagined the two bridge loop was quite a trek, but it was actually pretty easy. Now, if we could just have them keep the old TZ as a walkway, we could have a two-bridge loop right next door.

    When an event gets nearer some people who had signed up often drop out and this moves those on the waiting list up. So there is always a very good chance if you are on a wait list that you may still get into an event. Keep a check on your emails as the notifications go out automatically.

    For the members who also like to dance, the dance studio that I frequent is having an event later that evening. A one hour Swing lesson and an additional 2 hours of dancing for $12. The studio is 12 minutes or 6.5 miles away on the other side of Poughkeepsie. It is also only 4 minutes from the Taconic. Here is a link: http://www.meetup.com/Dance-Night-Out/events/205442552/
