The Kingston Land Trust Rail Trail Committee organized a successful clean-up of the “Kingston Link Trail” located off of Washington Avenue in Uptown, Kingston. New and old faces of over 50 rail trail enthusiasts came to support the effort as part of the 3rd annual Kingston Clean Sweep organized by the Friends of Historic Kingston and the City of Kingston Parks and Recreation Department.

Special thanks to all of our partners and sponsors, the KLT RTC Trail Keepers and Outreach and Subcommittee, the Church Communities, Hannafords, City of Kingston, Friends of Historic Kingston and most of all, to our hard working volunteers.

The Kingston Land Trust Rail Trail Committee now coming into its second year has 24 members and three subcommittees. If you’re interested in joining us, contact to be directed to the appropriate place.

The next KLT Rail Trail Committee Rail Trail clean-up event will take place on June 2nd as part of National Trails Day. Join us back downtown to work on the Kingston Point Rail Trail. More details shortly.
