Details

The Hudson Valley's most unique state park, Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park crosses the river atop the former Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge. The first span erected between the Hudson River's mouth and the City of Albany, the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge was conceived in the late 1860s to connect Pennsylvania's coalfields with New England's industries. When originally opened in 1888, the 6,768-foot span was considered the world's longest bridge and an engineering marvel.
