Tour and discussion, 3pm this Saturday
As part of this year’s Hudson River Valley Ramble, the Kingston Land Trust and members of its Rail Trail Committee are hosting a walking tour of the proposed Kingston Point Rail Trail on Saturday, 9/14. This trail, which connects midtown to the Rondout via a section of the former Ulster & Delaware Railroad, is part of the Kingston Land Trust’s vision for the Kingston Greenline – a multi-use trail network linking Kingston’s residents and visitors to the City’s rich cultural, historical, recreational and commercial offerings.
The tour begins promptly at 3pm from the parking lot of the Rondout Savings Bank, 300 Broadway in Kingston. Participants should wear sturdy boots, since the trail is still undeveloped and the walk will cross over wet and weedy sections. Advanced registration is encouraged, but not required.
Parks & Trails New York is working with the Kingston Land Trust and the Rail Trail Committee as part of its Healthy Trails, Healthy People program to engage the community in exploring the feasibility of connecting existing and proposed rail trails into the city.
