Hudson River Waterfront Walkway Description

The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway cruises along the Hudson river waterfront with spectacular views of the neighboring New York City skyline for nearly 22 miles. Made up of a series of boardwalks, riverside paths and more, the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway provides a trail users a scenic opportunity to escape the city life and get out and get active. 

Starting with a short section in Fort Lee at Rock Dock Park, the trail then travels south all the way to Dennis P. Collins Park in Bayonne. A majority of the trail's mileage is concentrated in the middle mileages of the trail in Jersey City, Hoboken, Union City and Woodcliff, all though there are still many gaps along this section, it is still where more of the mileage is concentrated. 

Along it's 22 mile route, the Walkway passes notable sight including the Weehawken Waterfront Park, Steven's Institute of Technology, Hoboken Bus Station and Ferry Terminal, Liberty State Park (with premium views of Ellis Island and Lady Liberty), the infamous Carlo's Bakery, and of course, the uninterrupted New York City Skyline its whole length. 

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at numerous points along the trail including at both endpoints at Ross Dock Park, along Henry Hudson Dr. and at Dennis P. Collins Park at 200 W 1st St. See TrailLink Map for more options.

Hudson River Waterfront Walkway Reviews

I bike here daily

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.
