Kingston Point Rail Trail Description


The Kingston Point Rail Trail is 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 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. 

About the Route

The Northern section of the trail takes 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. 

The second, southern section of the trail extends farther south between the Trolley Museum of New York and Rotary Park. This section traverses alongside an active tourist trolley, and trail users should note that there is little space between the trail and the rail. 


From Rotary Park, trail users can connect to the nearby Hudson River Brickyard Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

The Kingston Point Rail Trail runs between E Chester Street (Kingston) and Rotary Park, 97-79 Delaware Ave (Kingston), where parking is available.

Additional parking is available along the route but without official addresses. Please see TrailLink Map for all parking options and detailed directions.

great way to get downtown

This trail connects midtown and the waterfront. Easy ride both ways

To Be Continued...

This is, so far, a short but fun trail. The city of Kingston, NY has plans to extend it along the Rondout Creek and Hudson River. The west end also can meet up with the D&H Canal Heritage Corridor (O&W Rail-Trail) in Hurley, after a very rural path. So it is coming along nicely.
