Thanks to your help, the Rosendale Trestle is OPEN! 150 feet high, 940 feet long, and a iconic landmark of this extension of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.
Together the Wallkill Valley Land Trust and Open Space Institute have nearly completed the $1.5 million fundraising for the restoration of the trestle, but we still have $120,000 to go! The Open Space Institute has committed a generous 4:1 matching challenge grant. We need your help. With the challenge grant, this is the perfect time to make your gift today.
The Wallkill Valley Land Trust, in partnership with Open Space Institute, acquired 11.5 miles of rail bed in Rosendale and Ulster including the trestle almost 4 years ago and since then we focused on restoring the trestle. The $1.5 million project (for just the restoration of the trestle) celebrated a grand opening June 29, 2013 and the trestle is now open dawn to dusk every day.
