Hikers at Anthony's Nose in the Hudson Highlands


The Greenway Legislation set a goal to establish a trail network on both sides of the river between Manhattan and Saratoga County.
The Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail

In 1991 the Hudson River Valley Greenway was created in part to establish a network of multi-use trails along both sides of the Hudson River. Today the Greenway is working to create a system of trails from the northern borders Saratoga and Washington counties to Manhattan. The Hudson River Greenway Trail System consists of two main components: a land trail and a water trail for paddling and boating. A major route included in the land trail is Bike Route 9, a North-South on-road bicycling trail.
