Cuomo proposes  creation of the Empire State Trail

ALBANY – Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the 20th proposal of his 2017 State of the State tour on Tuesday, January 10: completing an 'Empire State Trail' by the year 2020, a project Cuomo says will “change the economic activity throughout the state."

Upon completion, the proposed 750-mile trail would be the largest state multi-use trail network in the nation, connecting Lake Erie to the Albany region and the New York Harbor to Canada.

According to Cuomo, the Empire State Trail would be created by completing the existing Hudson River Valley Greenway and Erie Canalway trails to create a 750-mile pathway for hiking and biking along scenic vistas across the state.
