Thanks to your help, the Rosendale Trestle OPENED June 2013! 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 completed the $1.5 million fundraising for the restoration of the trestle! 

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 in 2009, and since then we focused on restoring the trestle. The $1.5 million campaign for the Trestle restoration was celebrated a grand opening June 29, 2013 and the trestle is now open dawn to dusk every day.
