Trail Overview

This 6.5-mile Empire State Trail section through the City of Kingston has varied conditions. Two off-road paths welcome walkers and bicyclists of all abilities. Conversely, two connecting on-road sections are intended for experienced bicyclists comfortable traveling next to vehicle traffic. This section starts slightly south of Kingston, at a parking lot at the intersection of Route 32 and Rockwell Lane. Heading north, the first 2.5 miles are on-road, designated on Route 32 and city streets. The off-road Kingston Point Rail Trail starts at the intersection of West Chestnut St and Jansen Ave, looping east 1.5 miles to Roundout Landing. From there, a 1-mile on-road route is designated on the shoulders of East Strand St. The second 1.5-mile off-road path – the Hudson River Brickyards Trail which will open in 2021 – runs north from Hutton Brickyards to a parking area at John St. in East Kingston.
