Also in 1991, both the Town and Village of New Paltz purchased from the Wallkill Valley Land Trust their sections of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and donated back to WVLT a land preservation agreement (conservation easement) to ensure the trail would always be a linear park. At the same time the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail Association www.WVRTA.org was established to maintain, enhance, and promote the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.
