County Receives $150k for Multi-Use Trail

Written By Editor on 12/14/14 | 12/14/14

It's been talked about for over a decade now, but a multi-use trail spanning much of the County may actually become a reality, due to several recent moves. First, local committees for the NY Rising projects came together with a plan for a trail to stimulate local athletic, ecological, and business activities in the area.

The plan is to bring a trail along the Schoharie Creek to allow a combination of hikers and bikers to travel along the scenic region. The trail would run from Blenheim to Esperance and pass through Fulton, Middleburgh, and Schoharie. The $149,876 project will be funded through the Department of State. The new Schoharie Area Wild group, established by SALT with local municipalities, has been working on local planning.

The state describes the project as:
"Schoharie County will implement recommendations from the Schoharie County New York Rising Community Reconstruction Plan to improve community resiliency and promote tourism and recreation. The project will examine the feasibility of a Schoharie Creek multi-use trail from North Blenheim to the Village of Esperance.Schoharie County will implement recommendations from the Schoharie County New York Rising Community Reconstruction Plan to improve community resiliency and promote tourism and recreation.
