WALKWAY OVER THE HUDSON

40 minutes from our Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast you can walk or bike across one of the great rivers of the world .Wow! New concrete panels replaced railroad ties, redesigned railings, modern digital lighting and an elevator have made an 1880 railroad bridge into one of the great parks in America. It is bold and exciting. Connecting the Town of Lloyd in the west and Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County in the east for over a mile, the bridge once carried 3,500 train cars a day. Now you can walk and bike across without worrying if you have to step aside for the train. You must see and experience this. www.walkway.org.
