We are working with communities to expand opportunities to explore the beauty of Columbia County with new trails county-wide. 

CLC is a partner to communities pursuing public open space and trail projects throughout Columbia County. Our services include assistance with planning, grant proposals and grant management, mapping, public presentations, and outreach to enlist support from local, county, and state government. CLC helped create the Vision Plan for Columbia County Trails – a map of existing trails, those in development, plus opportunities for future paths.

CLC and the Columbia Economic Development Corporation are collaborating to sponsor a feasibility study of a possible multi-use trail connecting the City of Hudson with the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. This could make use of part of what was once the Boston & Albany railroad corridor. Read more here.
