One Walk with Three Great Views

Once again we are expecting a large group of FreeWalkers to walk the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and the New York City Greenway at our fifth annual 30-mile Hudson River Loop Walk on Saturday, June 10, 2017. We are encouraging other walking groups to join with us in this "UnitedWalking" event..

Our three views start by walking the Hudson River waterfront on the Jersey side. Here the Hudson River Waterway Waterfront is nearly a complete promenade along the water right to the George Washington Bridge. The walk over the GW is itself a treat, but we continue down the New York Greenway all the way to the World Trade Center to complete the 30 miles. All with the Hudson River in sight.

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 has been 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. 

We invite everyone to join us. The event is free but we collect donations in support of the beautiful trails we use.

This is among the most highly rated of walks in the area and always draws a big crowd.

Its brand-new and what a view!

In the past five years, the Hudson Loop Walk has varied its finishing venue from Woodruff's downtown to Bar A at the Battery. We've also tried a place or two on the NJ side for NJ FreeWalkers. This year we have a promising new venue right on the waterfront near Exchange Place, Harborside area called Lutze Biergarten .

This bar and restaurant, which will open on May 5 to fireworks, is an outdoor riverfront beer garden, serving a variety of German and craft beer, cocktails and various food options, including bratwurst, pretzels, pub grub and a raw bar, all while
