Fodor's Review

At 1.28 miles in length, the Walkway Over the Hudson is the world's longest pedestrian bridge, crossing over the Hudson River to link the cities of Highland and Poughkeepsie. You'll find walkers, runners, cyclists, and dog-walkers crossing the bridge to enjoy the panoramic view of fall foliage, migratory birds, and trains. There are entrances on each side of the bridge, both with picnic tables and vending machines. Seasonal food vendors also set up shop during the summer months.
