Connecting people to the Hudson River and the surrounding land through collaborative, innovative projects.
We think of our work as “connecting the dots” by linking protected lands to village and urban centers, mass-transit hubs and hospitality businesses.
Our trails and projects:
- Create direct and tangible public benefits
- Strengthen the region’s recreation-, agriculture-, and tourism-based economies
- Enhance the particular beauty and character of the Hudson Valley
Residents and visitors can visit our trails to keep in shape, breathe fresh air, spend time with friends and loved ones, and, if you’re lucky, see a river otter or a bald eagle.
