We had fun visiting Bad Seed Cider Company at Wilklow Orchards in Highlands, NY. Toured the fields, and enjoyed some great hard cider in their very popular tap room.

Picture yourself high in the sky with a birds eye view, on the watch from the crows nest of a tall masted schooner, yet you are on solid ground, a bridge in fact with a beautiful view, north and south, of the mighty Hudson.
Walking or on your bike, it is quite a spectacle. A modern structure that connects the rail trails from Highland to Poughkeepsie and beyond, east and west.
At both ends are information centers and great signage to guide your journey. Along the bridge are bits of Hudson River history and trivia.
On the Poughkeepsie side there is a guide to side trips around town.
On the west end there are food trucks and a picnic area. Parking is easy on both.

There are few things to my mind more blissful than sailing. Yes it is some work and you do have to know the tricks, but that moment when the wind is just right, your lines are taught and you can just sit back and guide the rudder, that’s heaven.
Here are some ways to partake
