Multi-use trails, or greenways, represent a major statewide tourist attraction that boosts local economies throughout the Capital Region. They also represent easy access to exercise, a leading way to prevent heart disease and stroke.

The plan was created through legislation sponsored by Assemblymember Fahy and signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019.

Scheduled to join Fahy are New York State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid, Chris Morris, Statewide Trails Master Planner, and Andy Beers, Director of the Empire State Trail.
