One Walk with Three Great Views
Once again the FreeWalkers, the Hudson River Waterway Conservancy and the East Coast Greenway will be bringing you what many consider the best overall walk in the metropolitan area.
We start 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. As construction contines on the PATH rail lines over the weekend, PATH is providing an even better alternative with ferry service back over to Exchange Place, instead of taking the PATH train.
The route is the same as last year.
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 36 FreeWalkers (60% of those walking - total 85) made the full distance (28-30 miles) which is a testament to both some tough walkers, a beautiful setting and great weather.
This walk was our largest participation for 2013. The walk also received the highest survey ratings among all our events.
