The Kingston Greenline is a system of trails, linear parks, and complete streets that when fully developed will connect residents & visitors to Kingston's natural, historic, cultural and commercial assets.
Vision For The Region
The Greenline serves as a regional hub for the growing system of rail trails throughout Ulster County and is a segment of the Empire State Trail, which runs from New York City north up to the Canadian border, and west to Buffalo along the Erie Canal corridor. The “spine” of the Kingston Greenline system is a historic rail corridor that links to other regional rail trails: the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, the O&W Rail Trail (aka the D&H Canal Heritage Corridor, or the Hurley/Marbletown Rail Trail), the Ashokan Rail Trail, and the Kingston Point Rail Trail. A network of complete streets, non-motorized trails, linear parks, and other pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure across Kingston creates an accessible and safe non-motorized transportation system within the city.

Vision For The Nation
The Kingston Greenline is part of a growing movement towards investing in trails and non-motorized transportation routes across the United States. The Greenline can serve as a national model of how coordinated public infrastructure projects can make small cities more walkable and bikeable- improving accessibility, health and overall quality of life in our neighborhoods.
