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.
Vison For The Region
The Greenline will serve as a regional hub for the growing system of rail trails throughout Ulster County and will be a segment of the Empire State Trail, whose route runs from New York City up to the Canadian border, and west to Buffalo along the Erie Canal corridor. The Greenline is made up of several important pieces. The “spine” of the envisioned network consists of key segments of important regional rail trails that enter the city: the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, the O&W Rail Trail (aka the D&H Canal Heritage Corridor, or the Hurley/Marbletown Rail Trail), the developing Ashokan Rail Trail, and the proposed Kingston Point Rail Trail. The spine of the system will provide protected, non-motorized trails that traverse the city through a series of linear parks along the former rail beds.

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