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. )

Trails groups and supporters from across the County and beyond will gather at the Trails Roundtable hosted by CLC. We will have a presentation from the Harlem Valley Rail Trail Association of the plans for the NW 11  section of the trail as well as report on the new section being constructed in Copake and Hillsdale.
Following the presentation, Trails groups from around the region will report their plans and progress.

    We are hosting an Earth-Day clean-up volunteer day followed by guided walks at all ten of our Public Conservation Areas (PCAs) – for a map, click here.
    Arrive to any of our PCAs and stay for as long as you wish. Between 10:00 – 2:00 pm, have a blast with fellow residents, CLC volunteers, and CLC staff while getting our PCAs ready for the 2014 season, then at 2:00 pm join us for a guided walk and enjoy the woods we just improved. Please, bring lunch and work gloves if you have them. We hope to see you, your family, and any helping hand you find! What better way to celebrate this international event in support of our planet?

    Please, register for this event and then email Nate Davis with the PCA location of your choice, so we know where we can expect you.
