  • Hudson River Skywalk

    The Hudson River Skywalk is a scenic 6-mile round trip pedestrian walkway where the Hudson River School of landscape painting began. The walkway connects Frederic Church’s Olana and the Thomas Cole Site via the Rip Van Winkle Bridge and features sweeping views of the Hudson River Valley and the Catskill Mountains.
    The Hudson River Skywalk Region includes the City of Hudson and the Village of Catskill, which both offer historic downtowns with restaurants, shopping and accommodations. Hudson River Skywalk is a collaboration between the New York State Bridge Authority, Thomas Cole National Historic Site, The Olana Partnership and Olana State Historic Site.
