The public is invited to an open house and presentation about the Boston & Albany Rail Trail Feasibility Study.  Before and after a brief presentation, maps and other information will be on display for viewing and discussion with the sponsors of the study.

Since last fall, the landscape architecture and engineering firm Weston & Sampson has been assessing the corridor around the active and former railroad, best known as the Boston & Albany or B&A, between the City of Hudson and the Village of Philmont.  The idea is to gauge the feasibility of a multi-use trail facility that would accommodate walking, biking, and possibly equestrian use, cross-county skiing, and snowshoeing.  If feasible, a trail in this corridor could connect the Empire State Trail and the Harlem Rail Trail.  Join us at this event to learn about the challenges and opportunities identified so far, and to share your perspective.

This event is free and open to the public.  We encourage registering in advance, to help us plan for seating and light refreshments.
