Walkill Valley Rail Trail

Surprised we didn't have a topic on this! Anyway, here is some news about a connection to Walkway over the Hudson:

Rail-trail extension underway near New Paltz

Chris White, the project manager for Ulster County, said the county is in charge of its 1.25-mile piece of the 5.5-mile-long project.

The Town of Lloyd has a .7-mile piece to the east back to the Walkway Over the Hudson by the Metro North train station.

The state Department of Transportation is charting the path of its 3.5-mile section, leading from near Lowe’s on Route 299 west into the Village of New Paltz, across Route 32 to the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail heading north.

The project will also link up to the trail that’s planned across the valley floor west to the Shawangunk Ridge.
Next stop, Willoughby
