Walkway Over The Hudson

If you find yourself in the Hudson River Valley with some time on your hands, you could do worse than visit the Walkway Over The Hudson.  It is an old railroad bridge that has been converted to a pedestrian walkway over the river, and it is worth a visit.

The walkway, which is about 1.5 miles in length, takes you high over the river and gives you commanding views of Poughkeepsie and the surrounding countryside on both banks.  It is a bit strange to walk on this span, so far about the water — it’s definitely not for those with fear of heights — but the views are truly spectacular.
