Harlem Valley Rail Trail

If you have ever been to the Wassaic train station, which is the farthest north that Metro North travels, you may have seen the sign for the Rail Trail (above). The trail is a paved pathway for walkers and bikers (bicycles), that begins at the train station, then heads up the eastern side of Dutchess County before heading into Columbia County. There are currently 16 miles of completed trail stretching from the trail head in Wassaic to Orphan Farm Road in Copake.

The Harlem Valley Rail Trail Association (HVRTA) hopes to eventually create a 42-mile unbroken path that extends all the way to Chatham. As of now, there are three breaks in the trail: from Chatham to Hillsdale; between Millerton Station and under Mountain Road; and from Black County Road to Orphan Farm Road in Copake. The HVRTA just announced that two bids for the trail’s completion came in under budget, so it looks like the project will be moving forward.57b0f958bf90e.image
