Wallkill Valley Rail Trail 散歩道

11/16/2017 Our house is right by the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. And we have a direct access to this trail from our backyard. This was a big plus when we were deciding the house. The path to the trail was closed and bushy (previous owner didn’t use it) so we opened it up a bit and we now have the access to the trail!

The railroad was used from 1866 to 1977. The tracks were removed eventually and used as walking trails now. It is about 24 miles long from Gardiner to Kingston. You can enjoy walking, running, bicycling, horseback riding and cross country skiing.

We can go to the downtown within 3 mins on foot now. And and and… there is an Italian restaurant there and they make good New York pizza!! So we can’t wait to go there through the trail!

2017年11月16日 新居のすぐ脇には散歩道があり、家の敷地内から直接散歩道に道を作っていいことになっています。家を決めるときの条件として、これはかなりプラスでした。前の家主は使っていなかったようで木や草が生い茂っていたけれど、10mぐらいの通路を開通させれば散歩道に出られて、ダウンタウンにも歩いて3分くらいで行くことができます。ということで、少し木や草を切ったりして道を歩けるようにしました。でも、他の人に入ってきてほしくないので、我々しかわからないようにしています。


The red circle area is the entrance of the trail. 丸く囲ったところが入口。

Well… We want the entrance to be “discreet” so we need to go wild a bit.

You can be right on the trail! 茂みの先はこの景色!
