Shoreline Trail, segment of the Hudson Highlands Fjord Trail. Visioning by SCAPE Landscape Architecture DPC
The Hudson Highlands Fjord Trail is a long-term community collaboration created by a group of committed partners who share in planning, funding, and execution.
The team is comprised of five regional non-profits: Hudson Highlands Land Trust, NY-NJ Trail Conference, Open Space Institute, The Lenape Center, and Riverkeeper; four state agencies: Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation, Department of Transportation, Department of Environmental Conservation, and Department of State; four municipalities: Village of Cold Spring, Town of Philipstown, Town of Fishkill and City of Beacon; two New York metro-area agencies: Metro-North Railroad and NYC Department of Environmental Protection; and three community-based non-profits: Friends of Fahnestock and Hudson Highlands State Parks, Little Stony Point Citizens’ Association, and the Philipstown Greenway Committee. The project is directed by Scenic Hudson.
The HHFT is in effect a “park within a park” that will be operated and managed by a new non-profit created for this purpose: Hudson Highlands Fjord Trail, Inc. The park will be within and connect to the larger Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve, which will still be managed as it is now by New York State Parks.
The park design is being advanced by an expert team that includes: About the Work (owner's rep), SCAPE Landscape Architecture DPC, Langan Engineers, Gray Organschi Architecture, and Fast & Epp Engineers.
