Rip Van Winkle Bridge

Catskill, NY

“Because it’s not all about eating, drinking and shopping, walk or bike the very handsome Rip Van Winkle bridge which connects Hudson and Catskill. The bridge is about one mile long and the views of the Hudson and the mountains are beyond rewarding."

Notes from the website:
The Rip Van Winkle Bridge is a cantilever bridge spanning the Hudson River between Hudson, New York and Catskill, New York. The structure carries NY 23 across the river, connecting on the west side, US 9W and NY 385 with NY 9G on the east side. The bridge is named after the 1819 short story of the same name by Washington Irving, which mentions the cities of Hudson and Catskill. The bridge includes a new pedestrian walkway which was completed in 2018 on the south side of the bridge which is open from dawn to dusk. Cyclists may use the roadway or may walk their cycles across the pedestrian walkway.
