Rosendale Bridge - Wallkill Valley Rail Trail - Rosendale NY
Hudson Valley

The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail extends from Gardiner, NY to the south up to Rosendale NY at the north, covering over 12 miles. Along the way, you pass right through the village of New Paltz, by horse farms, and spectacular views of the Shawangunk range.

Up until recently, you could walk part way across the magnificent bridge that carried the railroad over Rosendale, but now, that is sadly no longer available. Engineering surveys have concluded that it is not safe. The good news is, there is a vibrant community working to fix the problems and reopen the bridge as well as complete the full crossing, which will link the rail trail all the way up to Kingston!

If you are interested in finding a way to help out, go to http://www.wallkillvalleylt.org/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=41 to get connected.

As you walk, bike, or horseback ride along the trail, please keep in mind that private property is on either side of you.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
