To commemorate the Second Annual Kingston Clean Sweep on Saturday, April 30, the Kingston Land Trust is planning to host a clean-up event for a section of the former Ulster and Delaware Railroad that has long been used as a dumping ground. The event will target a small area of a proposed 1.5-mile long proposed multi-use trail that will eventually connect the midtown area with Kingston Point. For more information, check out Friends of Historic Kingston website.
On National Trails Day, June 4, the Kingston Land Trust will host a second event to clean up the remainder of the former rail corridor. The events reflect a growing consensus in the Kingston community that the city could someday be the trail capital of the Hudson Valley.
Parks & Trails New York is working with the Kingston Land Trust to engage the community in exploring the feasibility of connecting existing rail trails outside the city to the mid-town area as part of our Healthy Trails Healthy People program.
