Parking and Trail Access

Hudson River Waterfront Walkway Reviews

Although I bike more in Hoboken, Weehawken and Edgewater. In the next year, as new condo construction wraps up, the path will go almost 5+ miles without having to leave the scenic views of NYC along the Hudson. Relatively easy and flat, however at times the breeze of the water makes one feel they are biking uphill when into the wind. There are now a number of areas of restaurants, Starbucks, Ice Creams etc

Want a great trip? Get on the ferry to NYC and continue across the river. Just $1.50 additional to take a bike across.
