From the southern Trail Head at the Wassaic Metro North Station, through the eastern side of Dutchess County the Trail heads north into Columbia County then west and north on a journey that we hope you will find invigorating and enjoyable.
There are currently 10.7 miles of completed, paved Rail Trail stretching from the Trail Head in Wassaic to Millerton. There is an additional 5 miles from Under Mountain Road in Ancram to Orphan Farm Road in Copake. Millerton Station to Under Mountain Road is closed to the public. There is an alternate route on country roads with rolling hills.
The rest of the trail is in various stages of development.
We hope you have a wonderful adventure.
The Millerton Station to Under Mountain Road section is currently under active development, having received enough funds to initiate the planning and implementation process. We expect this section of Trail to begin construction in 2018-2019.
