Governor Coumo Bridge Path
What They Are about
While the walkway is a valuable resource for locals who want to get moving, it’s also a must-visit destination for anyone who enjoys a good Hudson River view. With six scenic overlooks (Fish & Ships, Palisades, Painters Point, River Crossing, Half Moon, and Tides of Tarrytown) dotted along its length, the bright blue path provides ample opportunity for visitors to stop, snap a few photos, or simply enjoy the majesty of the Hudson Valley.
The path at the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week. Before visiting, check the bridge’s Twitter page for updates on inclement weather and parking. For bikers, the speed limit is 15 mph and helmets are required. Dogs, drones, skateboarding, and smoking are not allowed. For Rockland and Westchester-area residents, Hudson Link bus service offers free shuttles to each landing, with a detailed schedule here.
Coming soon, three food trucks – Anthi’s Greek Specialties, Graziella’s Italian Kitchen, and Westchester Burger Company – will set up shop daily on each side of the walkway on a rotating basis. On the Westchester side, Double Barrel Roasters will pour hot and cold coffee and drinks while The Blue Pig scoops ice cream and Sleek E-Bikes offers bike rentals during summer. Over on the Rockland end, Teagevity will serve organic tea and cold brew from Thursdays through Sundays. Both entrances have restrooms available for public use.
At this time, guests are expected to take COVID-19 related precautions before, during, and after using the path. Visitors should wear face masks and try to maintain social distancing from others walking along the trail and in the public bathrooms. In addition, the Hudson Link shuttles have a 25-customer limit, along with hand sanitizing units on each bus. The path may close at times because of poor weather conditions, maintenance or security concerns.
