Schunnemunk Recreational Rail Trail Becomes a Reality

The Open Space Institute has purchased an unused section of the former Erie Railroad Line in Orange County. This acquisition sets the stage for the future construction of a Schunnemunk Rail Trail, with the goal of creating a new multi-use recreation trail between two state parks, Schunnemunk Mountain State Park and Goosepond Mountain State Park, and adding improved recreational opportunity for walkers, cyclists, hikers, and birders.
We are delighted for the Washingtonville, Blooming Grove, Chester and Salisbury Mills communities.  For full information on these new developments, follow these links:
