Frederick Douglas Trail

The Frederick Douglass Trail is another Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail, consisting of approximately two (2) miles wholly in the City of Newburgh. The Trail was developed to commemorate the route walked by Frederick Douglass and more than 4, 000 people for the 1870 Jubilee Celebrations of the 15th Amendment to the Constitution. 

The Route

The Trail is a circular loop running the length of South Johnston Street, approximately 0.11 miles, turning left to traverse in a westerly direction along Broadway for approximately 0.63 miles. The Trail then turns left on to Lake Street / New York State Route 32 for approximately 0.13 miles, once again turning left onto Washington Street. The Trail traverses in an easterly direction for approximately 0.68 miles back to South Johnston Street. View the Frederick Douglas Trail Map (PDF).
