An easy hike. Took us an hour to do the Lane Loop, but we weren’t in any hurry. Offers some nice spots for views of the Hudson. And oh my gosh the wildflowers! Fields of them!

Easy walk for a beautiful view!

Beautiful little walk :)

Easy hike near river. Bring bug spray in warm weather. lots of biting annoying critters there. Pretty woodland setting though.

Love the trails here, if your a bit tired and need to take it easy...good trail to work out on.

Love the view

Did the full loop and also completed Franny Reese State Park on the way. It was neat to do this as I've run the walkway so many times but never done the full loop. Everything was clearly marked and we ended up taking the elevator back up to the walkway which I had never done before. This will be my new running route!

Overall this is an easy walk, sunscreen might be needed based on the day.

Don't forget your sunscreen! That bridge crossing is long and in the sun! The west side of the Hudson has more shade. Great walk!

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

Did full loop. Sections tieing the two bridges together VERY poorly marked. Make a mistake on the Poughkeepsie side and you can end up in a pretty sketchy neighborhood wandering around trying to find the either bridge.

Very enjoyable trail!

Great walk with the wife, 12 year old and our dog.

Loved this! Did this trail last year and one of the food carts had the most amazing candied bacon so I bought a side of it...so delish. The walk was great and we loved Poughkeepsie very much!

Beautiful views. All paved terrain and basically flat or downhill.
