Dugway Trail Improvements

The City of Hudson is partnering with the Hudson River Valley Greenway (HVRG), a New York State agency, to make improvements to the Dugway trail.

HRVG will rehabilitate the one-quarter mile Dugway trail, a walking and bicycling path which connects Harry Howard Avenue and Mill Street. The Dugway trail is also part of the Empire State Trail and is adjacent to the recently completed shared path improvements on Harry Howard Avenue. The Dugway Trail is also adjacent to Charles Williams Park and in close proximity to the dog park. HRVG is undertaking the project with state funds from the Empire State Trail program.

“We need to expand access to our public parks,” says Mayor Kamal Johnson. “This project improves our infrastructure, reduces municipal costs, and will make it easier for people of all abilities to enjoy our city.”

The project will remove the Dugway trail’s aging surface, reconstruct the path’s gravel subbase as needed, and install a new 10-foot wide paved trail. New signage and trail entrance features will be installed to bring the trail up to current safety and accessibility standards. When completed, the improved trail will welcome bicyclists, walkers, and runners of all ages and abilities.

The project is scheduled to be completed by May 31. The week of April 19, the trail closed to the public to allow for construction.

Information about the Empire State Trail, including detailed trail descriptions and an online map depicting the trail route, designated parking areas, and nearby attractions is available on the project website: https://empiretrail.ny.gov.
