Walkway Over the Hudson - East Side

You can park very close to the beginning and walk across. There is an elevator half way across that brings to the town below where you can have a bite to eat. It's a fun walk with great views.

Walk across a 100-year old train trestle on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail. The bridge crosses over to Highland. The Poughkeepsie side entrance onto the trail is quite a ways back from the Hudson River.
