Ashokan Rail Trail Steward



After years of planning and construction, Ulster County is preparing to open the first segment of the Ashokan Rail Trail in mid-October. As we prepare for this partial opening, we have partnered with the County and Woodstock Land Conservancy on a volunteer Trail Steward program, which is where you would come in!

Trail Stewards will help ensure that the new trail is enjoyed and used responsibly by all, as well as help to keep the County informed about trail maintenance issues that arise. We’re looking for friendly people to greet new trail users and help with any questions they might have about the new trail or the local area.

Stewards can work on bicycle patrol or stationary at the trailhead parking areas. Stewards are needed Saturday and/or Sunday during 4 shifts:

  • 7am – 10am
  • 10am – 1pm
  • 1pm – 4pm
  • 4pm – 7pm
