Project Main Details
NARRATOR: It’s one thing to go outside. It’s another thing to go outside and kayak around a castle,
bike across the world’s longest pedestrian bridge, and hike along a historic incline railway.
I heard there were awesome outdoor experiences to be had in Dutchess County, and I was ready to
meet up with friends to find a few.
Mountain bike? Check. Camping gear? Check. Cool tunes for the short ride north? Check and
First stop; the Walkway Over the Hudson. The word “walkway” barely describes it – you can bike it,
skate it, or run it, too. Stretching more than a mile over the Hudson River, it’s the longest elevated
pedestrian bridge in the entire world! AND The view is breathtaking.
Time to shred some trails! My bike comes with me to Tymor Park in the Town of Union Vale. These
are some of the best mountain biking trails around.
In less than 20 minutes, I’m on the Appalachian Trail hiking with friends. 30 miles of this incredible trail
passes right through Dutchess County. It doesn’t take us long to get to the boardwalk that winds
through the Great Swamp. Whoa; it feels like another world out here.
We’re not done yet. Over to the Links at Union Vale, an 18-hole, public links-style golf course with
views of the hills all around. It’s one of several award-winning courses here in Dutchess.
We’re up for one more challenge – hiking Scenic Hudson’s Mount Beacon Park. It’s a mile up, or
1,000 vertical feet, but who’s counting? I’m preoccupied by the amazing views from the overlook – of
the valley, and the ruins of the old incline railroad that used to run up here.
Finally, it’s time to settle down and chill by the fire. What a day!
My friends had told me you can Do it all in Dutchess. I am off to discover new outdoor adventures in
Dutchess County…and you should, too.
