For the second year in a row, FreeWalkers is hosting a Winter Hudson Loop.  The same walk you enjoyed in June now in December.  The winter walk is part of the Kennedy 50 Training Program.  However, all walkers are welcome.  This walk will be at a slighly faster pace than the June walk with limited breaks.   All are welcome, just realize if you walk slower or take long breaks, you will not be walking with the main group.

At the request of walkers in training for the Kennedy 50, we have made some changes.  First off we will start at the Hoboken Train Station.  Second, we are adding a circuit through Liberty State Park before we actually start the loop. We will walk south along the river thru Jersey City and do a lap thru Liberty State Park.  We will then head north thru the Hoboken Train Terminal.  For those who do not like early morning starts, we should be passing thru the terminal around 11:30 am, why not join us then.

From Hoboken, we will continue north along a nearly continuous Hudson River Waterfront Walkway on the Jersey side to the George Washington Bridge.  After the spectacular trip across the bridge, we connect to the Hudson River Greenway trail, head south to Battery Park and backtrack up to Penn Station.  The whole walk is approximately 41 miles.

In the event you are unable to finish, you will find the MTA Broadway-Seventh Avenue local, the 1 train, always nearby during the second half of the walk.
