Henry Hudson Drive is a scenic roadway that begins at the Edgewater park entrance and follows the Hudson River north for 7 miles, providing access to Ross Dock Picnic Area, Englewood Picnic Area & Boat Basin, Undercliff Picnic Area, and Alpine Picnic Area & Boat Basin. The Drive was constructed between 1916 and 1940.

Two spurs connect Henry Hudson Drive with the Englewood Cliffs and Alpine park entrances:
Dyckman Hill Road, about 0.75 mi. long, connects Henry Hudson Drive with the Englewood Cliffs park entrance, at Parkway Exit 1 (Palisade Avenue, Englewood Cliffs). Due to its steep, narrow, and winding character, bicycles are not permitted on Dyckman Hill Road.
Alpine Approach Road, about 1.25 mi. long, connects Henry Hudson Drive with the Alpine park entrance, at Parkway Exit 2 (U.S. Route 9W, Alpine). Park Headquarters is at the summit of Alpine Approach Road.
Henry Hudson Drive is open to cars and bicycles during daylight hours only, conditions permitting, during the warm weather season. During the winter months, the section of Henry Hudson Drive from Dyckman Hill Road north to Alpine Approach Road is closed; if conditions permit, Alpine Approach Road, Dyckman Hill Road, and the section of Henry Hudson Drive from Dyckman Hill road south to the Edgewater park entrance, including the Ross Dock entrance road, remain open during the winter.
The Parkway Police Twitter feed provides live updates on Henry Hudson Drive status.
