This will be a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the vibrant beauty of the Hudson Valley at the peak of the Fall season. Volunteers will be needed to help spruce up the beautiful 22-mile Wallkill Valley Rail Trail before winter sets in.

There will be two meeting points in the Rosendale section of the trail.
