Accompanying the Mid-Hudson Bridge is the moon hanging high, accompanied by a starry sky. This moon-lit walk is the first of the season in which you can walk the bridge during late-night hours. For only $5, non-members can purchase tickets to the event here. These tickets depend on the entrance of the Walkway, so be sure to confirm if your ticket correlates with the Poughkeepsie or Highland entrance prior to arrival.
Walkway Over the Hudson
The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park is the world’s longest elevated pedestrian bridge, spanning 1.2 miles a full 212 feet above the Hudson River. The city of Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County is connected to the town of Lloyd in Ulster County through the park. A non-profit organization with the name Walkway Over the Hudson converted the abandoned Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad bridge into the park. A fire left the railroad bridge abandoned in 1974. Walkway Over the Hudson formed a partnership with private corporations, other non-profit groups, the federal government, and the State of New York. This partnership opened the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park in October of 2009 to hikers, cyclists, and runners.
