SPECIAL EVENTS

As part of the Hudson Valley Ramble sponsored by the Greenway Conservancy for the Hudson River Valley, Inc. the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail Association has put together an "event" walk entitled Wallkill Valley Perspective.

From the Village of New Paltz, follow the path of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail along the river through riparian woodlands to where the landscape breaks open on tilled farmlands framed by Shawangunk Mountains. Live music at the Springtown Road Bridge heralds your arrival at the turnaround point.

The return trip travels the "oldest street in America," Huguenot Street, with its 17th and 18th century stone houses.

Date: Saturday, September 23, 2020 (raindate: Sunday, September 24th)
Times: 9:30 am and 1:30 pm

Directions to gathering point: From I-87, exit 18 (New Paltz); L on Rte 299 W through main intersection in New Paltz to R on Huguenot Street and municipal parking 600 feet on left. From New York City, take Adirondack Trailways bus to New Paltz.


Rail Trail needs volunteers to help clear vegetation and brush. A work party is scheduled for October 7, 2020 9:30 am to 1:00 pm. All volunteers should meet at intersection of Rail Trail and Cedar Lane (near Plains Road).

Please bring hand tools (snippers, shears, pruning saws, rakes, etc.), gloves, work boots, and a hat. Insect repellent might be a good idea as well.

When the work is done, we hope to celebrate with a few songs (accompanied by a guitar) and light refreshments. We need you to help us make the Rail Trail even better, safer, and more fun to use.


In addition, the board of directors meets every first thursday of each month to discuss business and other matters pertaining to the upkeep and promotion of the Rail Trail. Meetings take place at the New Paltz Village Hall on the second floor.
