The Hudson River Brickyard Trail runs 1.5 miles from North Street to John Street in East Kingston. Located in Sojourner Truth State Park, the trail follows the shoreline and offers scenic views of the Hudson River, a variety of wildlife, and the surrounding landscape. The paved off-road path is part of the 6.5-mile section of the Empire State Trail in the City of Kingston. The developing 750-mile Empire State Trail will connect trails from New York City through the Hudson River Valley, west to Buffalo along the Erie Canal, and north to the Champlain Valley and Adirondacks, to create the longest multi-use state trail in the country.
From Kingston Point Beach where parking for the Hudson River Brickyard Trail is located, pedestrians take a 0.4-mile woodchip path and bicyclists ride along Delaware Ave to reach North Street. Passing the Hutton Brickyard property on North Street, you will reach the official south end of the Hudson River Brickyard Trail. This is where the 1.5 miles of paved, accessible trail begins.
During the summer months (April 1 to Oct 31), the trail is open from 6am to 8pm. Gates close promptly at 8pm. The trail is not maintained in the winter months (Nov 1 to March 31) but is open daily for recreation from 7:00am to 5:00pm. Gates close promptly at 5 p.m.
There are informational panels with a trail map at Kingston Point Beach and at the pedestrian gate by the Hutton Brickyards. Pets on leashes are welcome, provided their human companions clean up after them.
Parking is available for the northern end of the trail in a large loose gravel lot off Johns St, just south of where it meets Willow St. Parking at the southern end of the trail is located at Kingston Point Beach (102-144 Delaware Ave). The Kingston Point Beach parking lot has accessible spaces.
