For nearly ten years, Greater Good has been working to bring beautifully conceived and planned trails to northern Dutchess County. We see how active some residents already are, and we hear from others how they would enjoy their community more if there were more safe trails with convenient access points. Some of these communities already have trails, and some have trails which must be driven to and do not allow for connectivity between existing trails or points of interest.
The Hook Trail will enable the Red Hook community to experience our part of the historic Hudson Valley region through the many miles of connected bicycle and pedestrian trails, some planned for the near future and others already established.
The most successful of our proposed trails is the Saw Kill Link Trail, which we designed for the local Red Hook community. Since 2010, Greater Good has been developing and helping to get this trail built, so that residents and visitors can enjoy a scenic and off-route option between the Village of Red Hook and Bard College. And we could use your help! Click here for volunteer and donation opportunities.
