45th Great Manhattan Bridge Walk [34 miles]

The main group will walk over every pedestrian-friendly bridge around the perimeter of Manhattan Island (~31 miles). A ~10% faster group will do the same around the perimeter of Manhattan Borough (~34 miles). Starting at the George Washington Bridge Bus Station, we will proceed clockwise around Manhattan and end with the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan. There will be one ride on the Roosevelt Island Tramway for the longer route. Bring or buy lunch. There will be a few short breaks. Feel free to eat during the breaks or while walking. *NOTE: There is no slow group. Both groups will try to finish in 12-13 hours. If the number of people is small, we will try to stick together as one group.

Start: 8:15 AM – George Washington Bridge Bus Station Second Floor (Seats/Bathroom)

End: ~ 9:00 PM – Lower Manhattan side of Brooklyn Bridge

Great Manhattan Bridge Interactive Map


We will not walk over George Washington Bridge together. I recommend doing it before starting with us if you want to do so. This is so we do not have to complete an out and back as a group. Listed are the 22 times we cross a waterway on the longer route and the two underlined main rest stops. The 18 true perimeter bridges are in bold. The other route is very similar.
