Rail Trail

Kerhonkson has a rail trial available for running, walking and biking.  

History

In the late 1800s, the Ulster and Delaware Railroad replaced the Delaware and Hudson Canal.  It was often advertised as "The Only All-Rail Route To the Catskill Mountains." Railroad stations were built in each of the hamlets of the Hudson Valley.  The railway, completed in 1909, occupied the old canal tow path.  You can read about the railroad here.

Today

The Hudson Valley is making a great investment in turning the old railroad lines into trails for walking, running and biking.  Kerhonkson's Rail Trail runs past historic Main Street.
