The Hudson Loop offers bike-riders and walkers a 10-mile exploration of the two most exciting urban waterfronts in the nation, the West Side of Manhattan and the Hudson County waterfront in Weehawken, Hoboken and Jersey City, linked by NY Waterway ferries. The Loop runs from Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan, north on the Hudson River Park walkway/bikeway to the West 39th Street Ferry Terminal, where service is available to Port Imperial in Weehawken. NY Waterway ferries run every 10 minutes during weekday rush hour and every 20 minutes off-peak, seven days a week. The crossing to Port Imperial takes eight minutes.
