    This is the best thing to happen to the city of Poughkeepsie in years. Beautiful views and easy access to both sides. The best part is that The Hudson Valley Rail Trail connects for a great bike ride.

    This is definitely a great spot for the annual balloon fest and I suggest get there by 5:30am as the parking lot fills quickly and swamped with hundreds of people

    Gorgeous views! A great place to take a leisurely stroll. Nice breeze all year round. Bring a hat with a visor. Don't come without your camera. And bring a bottle of water. I love it.

    If you are not from Poughkeepsie, take the Amtrak train to Poughkeepsie Stn. rest-up. Bring your bicycle with to ride the bridge. For lunch try the delicious lamb gyros sold at the entrance.

    Great for riding your bike across. Be observant of walkers though. Also it is not only dog friendly with doggie bags & trash cans, but there's water bowls on the walkway as well

    Awesome! Love it. There is no shade so summer sunny days are hot... but with a sun hat it is beautiful. Or try early morning sunrise, that is my favorite time :-)

    Great place to go for a jog or brisk walk! Just remember to stay hydrated in the summer months. If it's not breezy, the walkway gets pretty hot.

    Walkway Over the Hudson is the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. There's a $5 parking fee that's good for the entire vehicle, but you don't have to pay to walk across the bridge.

    Built in 1888, it was the longest bridge in the world at the time. It carried 3,500 WWII troop-filled train cars daily at its peak before shutting down after a 1974 fire that damaged the tracks. Read more

    BRING PLENTY OF WATER for your dogs and/or try not to take dogs up on extremely hot days! Surface temp of the concrete is much worse for pups & many suffer from heat stroke! Stay alert & be careful!

    The high line of the north, a great connector that's worth a walk, run, or bike ride.

    Bring sun screen. It isn't located in the best part of town. Parking at the bridge is $5.

    The view is great, but it's disappointingly un-parklike. It's a big concrete walkway with 2 benches in the middle.

    The view is hard to beat. The wind is constant. Ignore the bitter locals who hate this walkway.
