D & H Canal Heritage Corridor

The O&W Rail Trail/D&H Heritage Corridor is a partially completed rail trail/ canal trail running nearly 35 miles through the Rondout Valley from Kingston to Ellenville and including various local rail trail segments, many of which have planned extensions to fill current gaps. More information on the entire corridor can be found at www.dandhcorridor.org. The longest existing segment current runs more than 12-miles along the Hurley and Marbletown Rail Trail segments. Descriptions of major segments are as follows: The Hurley Rail Trail is a shared- use rail trail open for non-motorized uses, including walking, running, bicycling, horseback riding, inline skating (on the northern section), cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The Hurley Rail Trail connects to the Marbletown Rail Trail and currently runs three miles (2.2 miles of 10-feet wide paved trail) along NYS Route 209 in Hurley. For more information on this segment, please visit www.townofhurley.org/plan/html/rail_trails.html. The Marbletown Rail Trail continues the Hurley Rail Trail southward for approximately nine miles to the Town of Rochester. The cinder/stone dust trail is open for walking, running, bicycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

The Rochester O&W Rail Trail is a multi-use cinder trail that is a favorite of the equestrian community, offering parking for horse trailers at the Town of Rochester Town Hall property off County Route 27 (Granite Road). This three-and-a-half mile trail runs between the hamlets of Accord and Kerhonkson running along well-shaded areas adjacent to the Rondout Creek.
