Winnakee Land Trust
The Winnakee Land Trust retained Chazen to prepare a comprehensive feasibility study to identify potential multi-modal pathways and various trail routes that connect the Village of Rhinebeck with the surrounding Villages and Hamlets of Rhinecliff, Red Hook, Tivoli and Staatsburg. This includes several waterfront access opportunities along the Hudson River. The Hucklebush Corridor could serve as a primary route through the region. The Greenway Trail and Empire Trail would also serve as primary collector routes. Based on this study, priority components of an integrated network have been analyzed from a planning and engineering perspective and a strategic decision-making framework has been developed. This work has been developed to advance and implement bike, pedestrian and equestrian trails throughout Northern Dutchess County and connect us to our cherished resources.
