The Walden-Wallkill Rail Trail consists of 2.5 miles of rail trail in Orange County that utilizes the former rail bed of the Wallkill Valley Railroad. The paved portion of the Rail Trail continues in a generally northern direction for another 0.7 miles into the Hamlet of Wallkill and the Town of Shawangunk, ending at Bonaventure Avenue / New York State Route 208. At this point the State Correctional facility needs to be bypassed utilizing the existing road network, but once around it the Rail Trail continues unpaved to New Paltz and beyond.
The Rail Trail starts in Wooster Memorial Grove Park in the Village of Walden. Exiting the park in a westerly direction, The Trail crosses East Main Street / New York State Route 52 to access Woodruff Street. Woodruff Street traverses in a northwesterly direction. At the intersection of Woodruff Street and Wileman Avenue, approximately 0.3 miles from Wooster Memorial Park, there is a path that winds down the hillside and accesses the start of the Walden-Wallkill Rail Trail.
