If you like scenery and want to enjoy a stroll, job, bike ride, etc., the Walkway is fantastic. Be aware that hot summer days can be tough for dogs, so maybe leave the pups at home for midday or hot day walks.

The Walkway Over the Hudson is amazing. The views were spectacular!! It was a very warm day so you needed water but there are kiosks in either end so no worries! Make the trip, you won't be sorry! The Fall would be good as well!

Are there still food vendors on the walkway during the wintertime? Or is it just when the weather is warm?

I believe they told us no food during the winter. The gift shops on either end are only open in good weather in the winter, depends on if a volunteers want to be there.
