Photos from 06/02/11 – Dutchess Rail Trail (Hopewell Junction)

Last Thursday, I had an opportunity to check out a section of the Dutchess Rail Trail that I hadn’t been to.  I have been to the one between Morgan Lake and Overrocker Rd in Poughkeepsie a couple of times, so I was curious to see if there were any differences.

The first thing I noticed was that there was a paved path, and also a soft path next to it for runners.  The handout that I picked up at a kiosk stated that the trail opened to the public back in November 2007 and is 1.7 miles long.  When combined with the section just recently opened, this trail is a little over 8 miles long!

I took pictures for my short walk on the trail for your viewing pleasure.  This location will be included in my revised ‘Places to Hike’ section, which I hope to piece together one location at a time, much like the ‘Wildlife’ section.  Enjoy!

    Which section of trail is this, Derek? From Morgan Lake to the Walkway?

      Its between Rt. 376 and Lake Walton Road in the Town of East Fishkill. Lake Walton seems like a big enough body of water for migrating ducks when the season is right too!
