Kingston Point Rail Trail Description

The Kingston Point Rail Trail will be a paved pathway stretching from Kingston’s midtown to the Rondout Creek waterfront, connecting important points in the community such as Kingston High School, City Hall, the YMCA, and Hasbrouck Park. The rail-trail follows the route of the former Ulster and Delaware Railroad, which once carried vacationers from Kingston Point to the Catskill Mountains. 

The first phase of the trail opened in September 2019, taking a serpentine route from Chester Street at Jansen Avenue to Garraghan Drive to the Rondout Gardens Housing community. The trail is paved, and connects to various businesses, John F. Kennedy Elementary and Hasbrouck Park. A restored 300-foot railroad tunnel takes users across US Route 9W. A little pocket park called the Hasbrouck Delaware Parklet, also provides access to the trail via a staircase leading down to the tunnel. 

Phase 2 will see the trail extended from Garagghan Drive down to the New York Trolley Museum. The trail is part of the Kingston Greenline, an initiative of the Kingston Land Trust which involves building out a network of trails and complete streets. Eventually the Kingston Point rail-trail will also link up with the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and the O & W Rail Trail.
