New Rosendale Trestle John Fischer www.NoRoadUnturned.comChallenge on the Trestle: All Aboard!

With fundraising nearly complete, OSI and WVLT expect to reopen the trestle—which offers incredible views of the Shawangunk Ridge, the Binnewater Lakes region and the hamlet of Rosendale—to the public within the next six weeks.
But we need your help.

A full engineering examination of the trestle in 2011 indicated that the structure of the trestle is in excellent condition. Extensive restoration work started in the spring of 2012, and WVLT and OSI hope that the restored Rosendale trestle will be reopened as part of the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail by the late Spring of 2013. Fundraising for this effort is progressing with more than $1 million raised for the $1.4 million project. We would like to thank everyone who donated this Fall towards the Jeffrey Doppelt $5,000 Challenge Match. The match was met at the end of November. We still need your help to raise the remaining funds to complete this restoration. Please donate today.
