Welcome to Hudson River Loop Walk

One Walk with Three Great Views

Once again the FreeWalkers, the Hudson River Waterway Conservancy and the East Coast Greenway brought out nearly 100 participants for one of the best overall walks in the metropolitan area on Saturday, June 7, 2014.

We started by walking the Hudson River waterfront on the Jersey side. Here the Hudson River Waterway Waterfront is nearly a complete promenade/walkwayy 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. This past year as construction continued on the PATH rail lines over the weekend, PATH provided an even better alternative, with ferry service back over to Exchange Place, instead of taking the PATH train.  

The route was the same as last year with the exception of the suggestion to all to visit the new World Trade Center reflecting pools which had recently opened.. 

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.

Last year 30 FreeWalkers (62% of those walking reporting back) made the full distance (28-30 miles) which is a testament to both some tough walkers, a beautiful setting and great weather. 63 participant names were recorded but not all provided feedback and some were not registered.

This walk was our largest participation for 2014. The walk also received one of the highest survey ratings among all our events.

Consider walking with us next year for the fourth year for this event - tentatively schedule for June 6, 2015.
