We are over the moon at Governor Cuomo’s proposal, put forth in his State of the State address, to establish by 2020 the Empire State Trail which would complete and connect the Erie and Champlain Canalway Trails and the Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail to create a 750-mile super trail that links NYC to the Canadian border, and Albany to Buffalo.
Closing the Gaps in the Canalway Trail has been a priority for PTNY for more than a decade. And, now, we see that dream coming to fruition, plus more! The Empire State Trail will be a legacy we are leaving for future generations of New Yorkers.
This good news is the result of your unwavering support. Thank you.
But if you think we can now rest on our laurels, you’re wrong!
We need to make sure the Legislature gets behind the Empire State Trail initiative so we will be mounting a full court press to that effect. One very important component of the campaign will be Trail Advocacy Day, scheduled for March 2 in Albany.
