The Town of Red Hook Greenway and Trails Committee is a volunteer advisory group committed to the continued development of a network of trails for public enjoyment, in order to protect the environment, promote health and wellness, enhance our quality of life, and promote our community's overall sustainability.
We are fortunate to have hundreds of acres of protected trails, farmlands, and woodlands within the Town, owned and managed by government, agricultural, educational, and land stewardship organizations. We cherish the public/private partnerships that allow public access to these resources. In addition, the V2V trail is a marked trail linking the two Villages (Red Hook and Tivoli) and is mostly on-road, with some portions through public park and DEC lands.
All of these places offer secure parking from which to begin and end a walk or bike. The Red Hook Greenway and Trails Committee welcomes suggestions for future trail development.
