Welcome to the Harlem Valley Rail Trail, two sections totaling 15 paved miles through stunning rural Dutchess and Columbia County landscapes. Since the mid-1980's, the Harlem Valley Rail Trail Association has dreamed of a 46-mile rail trail in the Harlem Valley and Taconic Hills of eastern New York. The first segment of the trail opened in 1996.

Since then, the trail has grown in 1997, 2000, and 2005. Another 13 miles of abandoned rail bed are in different development stages, and most of another 18 miles have been acquired to take the Trail north into the Village of Chatham.

Great news!
The Harlem Valley Rail Association has received a $375,000 matching grant from the New York State Regional Economic Development Council for the paving of the section of the Rail Trail from Anthony Street to Black Grocery Road.
Raising the $375,000 match will be a challenge and it will make 2014 a busy year for all involved.

Please take a moment to share our pride and happiness for reaching this important milestone.
