Become A Walkway Explorer
Your Child Can Be A Walkway Explorer!
Great for individuals, scouts, school trips, team outings, birthday parties, and more!
The Walkway Explorer program is geared to children ages 5 – 8 (Junior Explorers) and ages 9 and up (Explorers). It was designed to provide activities that are both fun and educational that will enhance the Walkway experience for our younger visitors. This program is like the Ranger programs that some National Parks offer.
There are two booklets that contain age-appropriate scavenger hunts, quizzes, puzzles, and other activities that will help the children earn a patch when the specified number of activities are completed. Potential Explorers can find the answers to all the questions at the east and west approaches and on signs along the Walkway.
Booklets cost $3 and are available at the East Gate Plaza Friend's Pavilion in Poughkeepsie and the Ulster Friend's Pavilion in Highland adjacent to the Walkway's gates. Pavilions are in operation seasonally from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
