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

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

    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.

    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 :-)

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
