A joint initiative of the Kingston Land Trust, City of Kingston, and Ulster County
The Kingston Greenline is a system of trails, linear parks, and complete streets that when fully developed will connect residents & visitors to Kingston’s natural, historic, cultural and commercial assets.
The Kingston Greenline supports non-motorized transportation by making it easier to travel throughout the city and increasing safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and people with disabilities. The system connects communities and provides residents better access to open space, exercise opportunities, and healthy food options.
The Kingston Greenline also serves as a hub for regional trails like the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and O&W Rail Trail, and the Hudson River Valley Greenway trails. It will also be a part of the future Empire State Trail, which is expected to be completed by 2020.
Initiative Partners: City of Kingston and Ulster County.
Thought and Engagement Partners: Woodstock Land Conservancy, Friends of the Catskill Mountain Rail Trail, Hudson Valley Bee Habitat, Travel Well Kingston, Bike Friendly Kingston
