The Wallkill Valley Rail trail runs from Gardiner, NY in the south to Rosendale in the north, covering over 12 miles of spectacular views of the Shawangunks range and running through the heart of Gardiner, New Paltz and right OVER Rosendale.

Built soon after the Civil War, the original railroad was a means for getting produce downstate to market. The eastern side of the Hudson river already had a well established rail system, but the western side, particularly in Ulster County, was lacking. The railroad connected the towns of Montgomery, Shawangunk, Gardiner, New Paltz, Kingston and Rosendale and further opened up commerce on that side of the Hudson River.

As the railroads in general began to die out, the land was purchased by a variety of groups in the hopes of creating a scenic walkway. That process began in the 1980's and the trail was formally opened in 1993.

これはUSA領域の概要です

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.
