The Hudson River Valley Greenway welcomes you to take part in the many exciting recreational trail efforts occurring throughout the Hudson Valley. The Greenway is helping communities and trail groups establish a system of trails that link cultural and historic sites, parks, open spaces, and community centers as well as providing public access to the Hudson River.
The goals of the Greenway Land Trail Program are to:
- Coordinate the designation and creation of a hiking/biking/paddling trail network, known as the Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail System, which provides physical and visual access to the Hudson River where possible;
- Promote and preserve the Hudson Valley’s recreational, scenic, natural, cultural, historic, and agricultural resources through carefully planned trail linkages and access points;
- Foster a community-driven, voluntary process for establishing and designating trails;
- Encourage the development of local trails that link to the Greenway Trail System and major trail corridors, forming larger area and regional networks;
- Support and encourage volunteer trail stewardship efforts;
- Enhance trails awareness and advocacy in the region;
- Contribute to the economic development of the Hudson Valley’s communities by creating trails, which support local businesses, complement tourism efforts, and make the valley a better place to live and work;
- Ensure that local communities have the tools they need to plan and develop trails through a program of technical assistance and grants.
This annual grant program is dedicated to funding recreational trail projects. Eligible project categories include:
- Trail Construction
