About the Connection Plan
The purpose of the Hudson River Valley Greenway Connection Plan is to document the existing alignment of the greenway and how anyone could walk or bike from New York City to the Adirondacks. While it is possible to take this ride or walk tomorrow, many improvements could be made to make this trip more comfortable and improve connectivity between Hudson River Valley communities and the river itself.
This study will identify where those improvements can be made to provide one continuous path between NYC and the Adirondacks. Further, a long term option on how to provide this path on both sides of the river will also be identified.
The Greenway Mission
To continue and advance the state’s commitment to the preservation, enhancement and development of the world-renowned scenic, natural, historic, cultural and recreational resources of the Hudson River Valley while continuing to emphasize economic development activities and remaining consistent with the tradition of municipal home rule.
