This is ok, but I much prefer trails out in nature - too much concrete and fencing for me.

Beautiful scenic view of the Hudson River from an eagles’ perspective. Paved, but a truly enjoyable change of pace from woodland trails. Well maintained facilities, informative and historic. Great for all ages/abilities and non-motorized modes of transportation.

Beautiful views and the Poughkeepsie waterfront side has been much improved with additional paths.

As much as I dislike "road walking", I must admit that this is a very nice walk. Beautiful views.

Easy walk with some great views of the Hudson (especially facing south toward the Mid-Hudson Bridge and Hudson Highlands). Walked on 10/20/18 as part of Alzheimer’s Association Walk. Plenty of spots to stop and enjoy the views.

My wife and I parked in the Parker Ave lot on the Poughkeepsie side. 3.1 Miles or 5k to the caboose on the highland side. Beautiful view, nice breeze and NO BUGS. Go early before the summer heat. Say Hi or nod to your fellow travelers it will brighten both your days

Nice little walk with beautiful views of the Hudson River...great spot for families. Started on the Highland NY side and made my way over to Poughkeepsie. Pretty certain my girlfriend and I were the only people on the bridge that noticed two Bald Eagles fighting in the sky above us...bring your binoculars because if patient you will have the opportunity to observe a Bald Eagle..without a doubt they are nesting nearby
