The Empire State Trail is a recently completed series on rail trails that connect Battery Park all the way to Canada! One of the most beautiful and historic sections runs from Poughkeepsie, NY to Highland, NY. It is about 5.5 miles each way passing through historic areas and over the Walkway Over The Hudson State Park. Our trip will start and end in Poughkeepsie with a midway stop at Wilklow Orchards for food and drinks.


How it works:


The group will meet at the Poughkeepsie train station at 10:48am. You can take the train or drive to meet the group there.

At the station you will walk over the walkway to your bikes. (You may also bring your own bike.)

We will ride from the Highland side of the Walkway to Wilklow Orchard stopping along the way to appreciate the historic points and enjoy the beautiful foliage.

At the orchard they have refreshments and a food stand. You can also pick up fresh berries, fruits and veggies (bring a backpack).

We will head back to Highland and return the bikes.

You will be on the 5:50pm train at the latest.

Difficulty Level:


This trail is 5.5 miles in each direction. It is flat and paved. There will be a short portion where we will ride on the roadway that connects the rail trail to the farm (1/4 mile). That portion has a slight incline. This is a leisurely ride not a race, but you should be in good shape as to not hold up the group.


Features of the ride:


The Walkway Over the Hudson is a 1.2 mile train trestle that was built in 1889 and has been converted into a pedestrian walkway. It offers amazing views of the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains in the distance.

The rail trail beyond the Walkway meanders through beautiful wooded areas and through great rock formations. The are also side paths to explore. Along the path are remnants of the trains that once rolled through these woods.

Wilklow Orchard is a fun farm stand nestled at the base of the Illinois Mountain. You can pick your own berries, sip on apple cider, order a personal pizza or sample some hard cider.

Cost: $140 General admission / Includes bike rental and guide fee only.
