Views From Walkway Over The Hudson State Historic Park

Walkway Over the Hudson BridgeOnce the longest bridge in the world, the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge used to carry raw materials from Western sources to Eastern industrial centers. In 2009, it was repurposed into the longest elevated pedestrian bridge and major New York attraction, now seeing over half a million visitors each year.

Spanning 1.28 miles, the walkway rests 212 feet above the Hudson River, a height now easily scaled on the newly opened 21-story glass elevator which connects the walkway with Upper Landing Park and the Walkway Loop Trail.
