Kingston Greenline

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.

Check out our new Kingston Greenline website here!

Initiative Lead: Ted Griese

The Kingston Greenline supports non-motorized transportation by making it easier and safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and people with disabilities to travel throughout the city. 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.
