The beautiful Hudson Valley in New York is an all-season destination that offers visitors and residents wonderful opportunities for sightseeing, dining, and learning about the many historic sites.

The Walkway Over the Hudson is one of these "can't miss" locations. Stretching across the 1.28 miles over the Hudson River between the Town of Lloyd on the west and City of Poughkeepsie on the east, the Walkway is the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. The views on the Walkway change with every season and continue to inspire visitors every day.

Travelers by car can reach the area by using the NYS Thruway to the New Paltz/Poughkeepsie exit 18 and take Route 299 to 9W south. The west gate of the Walkway Over the Hudson is located on Haviland Rd, off route 9W. To reach Poughkeepsie and the east gate, continue on route 9W to the Mid Hudson Bridge.

The scenic Taconic Parkway is another travel option. Take either route 44 if driving south or route 55 if driving north. Proceed west to the City of Poughkeepsie and follow the signs to the Walkway Over the Hudson.

Train service is also available through Metro North Hudson Line or Amtrak to Poughkeepsie. These and other transportation options are detailed on the Transportation page.
