Governor Pledges $2 Million to Expand New York Trails

Twelve trail projects will receive funding through Gov. Cuomo's NY Parks 2020 Plan.

New York's hiking trails are about to get a big upgrade, thanks to Governor Andrew Cuomo's $2 million gift to spruce up the state's outdoor recreation offerings. The money will go to 12 different projects, including trail rehab at Rockefeller State Park Preserve, new stone stairs at Ithaca Area Gorge Parks, and interpretive signs at Taconic Region State Parks.
