First Day Hike
January 1 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Friends of the Walkway and New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation invite everyone to start 2023 on Walkway Over the Hudson and take part in our traditional First Day Hike!
Meet at either the Poughkeepsie (61 Parker Avenue) or Highland (87 Haviland Road) entrances at 1 p.m. for the group trek to the Center Overlook (by the flagpole) where we’ll revel in a new year on the World’s Longest Elevated Pedestrian Bridge. The walk from the gate to the Center Overlook is approximately 0.6 miles. A one-way trek across the Walkway is 1.28 miles. The bridge is flat and paved with no stairs required.
This event is complimentary to attend and open to all. No RSVP is required. Call (845) 834-2867 with questions. Well-behaved pets are welcome on a four-foot non-retractable leash.
