Gardiner to New Paltz Improvement Work to Begin

In partnership with and funding provided by Ulster County, the Open Space Institute and WVLT are continuing to improve the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.

Improvement work will begin this Monday, September 19th in Gardiner and move gradually north to Sojourner Truth Park in New Paltz. 

Rail Trail users may encounter equipment & heavy machinery along the trail and short-term trail closures should be expected during the week from now into the fall to accommodate construction

For your own safety and the safety of the construction crews, if construction signs blocking the Rail Trail are encountered, please do not proceed or move the signage.  The trail will be fully open to trail users on weekends and holidays.  

This project is expected to improve overall public access to the Rail Trail establishing additional safety and experience advancements for residents and visitors.

Updates will be shared as they become available!
