The northern 9.5-mile stretch of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail beginning at Cragswood Road in the Town of New Paltz and ending at Rockwell Lane/Route 32 in the Town of Ulster is under construction August through October 2020.
WVLT greatly appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding as this improvement project for the Rosendale and Ulster sections of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail continues.
Initial clearing work to this point has allowed for only temporary closures on sections of Rail Trail, but as the major construction proceeds, we cannot impede progress nor put you, our users of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, at risk or in un-safe situations.
Therefore, please note that the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail from Cragswood Road in the Town of New Paltz to Rockwell Lane/Route 32 in the Town of Ulster will be under construction and closed to the public beginning again on Tuesday September 8 through the end of October on weekdays.
All efforts will be made to open all sections of the Rail Trail each weekend for users. Should a section of Rail Trail need to remain closed during a weekend, WVLT will post detailed information here and on our social media pages as they occur.
During the weekly closures, if a section is safe for use, it will be open. If signs are blocking the Rail Trail, that section is closed. Please respect the construction improvement work and come back and visit at another time.
The Wallkill Valley Land Trust and our partners at the Open Space Institute know you want to be on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and we look forward to using it with you later this fall!
