Public Invited to Enjoy the New “Marcus J. Molinaro Northside Line” Dutchess County’s urban trail connecting community assets in City and Town of Poughkeepsie now open for 24/7/365 use

The first phase of Dutchess County’s urban trail project in the City and Town of Poughkeepsie is open for public use and touting a new official name – the Marcus J. Molinaro Northside Line (MJM Northside Line) – honoring Dutchess County’s seventh County Executive for his commitment to Dutchess County Parks and his service to the County. 

The vision for the Northside Line is maximizing connections and access for those who walk, run, or bicycle, whether for transportation, recreation, or other purposes. This expansion of the region's trail system will link Poughkeepsie’s northern neighborhoods with key destinations, such as Marist College, Hudson Heritage, the Hudson River waterfront, the Walkway Over the Hudson, the W.R.S. Dutchess Rail Trail, the Fall Kill Creek, and a variety of nearby parks and local businesses.
