Columbia County Trails

Trail Vision Map 2012

Did you know that there are 19 miles of trails on CLC’s Public Conservation Areas alone. That’s in addition to the other community trails and major trail networks that are underway in the County, including the northern extension of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail and Kinderhook-Stuyvesant-Stockport Intermunicipal Trail (more at Friends of Kinderhook Trails. )

Upcoming Trail Events

Our next Trails Roundtable will be early spring 2014. We hope you join us to share your trail news and to discuss how to get started, overcome obstacles, and take advantage of all the synergies that trails can offer your community.

For more information, contact Christine Vanderlan at 518.392.5252, ext. 208 or christinev@clctrust.org.

Craig Della Penna was joined by many trail enthusiasts, the NPS, Hudson Valley Greenway, and Scenic Hudson to discuss the specific issues that Columbia County trail groups have to deal with, and to further our county’s Trail Vision Plan. You can view Craig’s presentation here.

  • Columbia County Trails Conference 2011

    April 2, 2011

    Did you know that there are 19 miles of trails on CLC’s Public Conservation Areas alone?  That’s in addition to the other community trails and major trail networks that are underway in the county, including the northern extension of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail and Kinderhook-Stuyvesant-Stockport Intermunicipal Trail.  Our county has an abundance of abandoned railroad corridors, utility rights-of-way, equestrian trails, and other linkages that could add up to a world-class countywide trail network.  Trails are important not only for recreation, education, and personal health, they are also increasingly recognized as an important component in community economic development. On April 2nd, 2011 we convened the first Columbia County Trails Conference on planning for community traills, and we’re enthusiastic about continuing to collaborate to improve trails in the County.
