Hudson River Loop Walk




The FreeWalker group had 80 or so walkers who participated in the June 9, 2012 walk along the Hudson River.  After a welcoming from the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy (and donuts and coffee compliments of Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts), they set out on a 28 mile walk.

This loop offers views for the entire walk on both the New Jersey and New York sides and plenty of interesting detours - Burdetts Landing and the High Line to name just two.

Thanks to the progress on the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway on the Jersey side and the well established Hudson River Greenway on the New York side, it's now possible for pedestrians and cyclists to complete a loop, except for the use of the PATH train from downtown World Trade Center to Exchange Place Jersey City.

The incomplete areas around Edgewater were navigated though detailed explanations provided by the Conservancy and maps and guidelines provided by the FreeWalkers.

This 28-mile walk was so successful that they hope to repeat it again next year.

Of course, you can explore the route yourself and the website http://www.hudsonloop30.org has all the information you need.
