Halfway Brook Trail On The Way!
Halfway Brook Trail To Be Completed in 2020
In the town of Queensbury, hiking trails, biking trails and all types of outdoor recreation spots have long been part of the exceptional experience Queensbury residents are afforded. There are multiple trails, brooks and streams, interpretive trail experiences and more. Fortunately, Queensbury is about to add another jewel to its rich trove of outdoor recreational opportunities.
The 1.5 mile long Halfway Brook Trail is slated to be completed this year. Supervisor John Strough recently told the Post Star that the new trail will begin at Potter Road, wind through the reservoir watershed, cross halfway Brook and end on Peggy Ann road. With a $100,000 state grant, Strough plans to find community members and businesses willing to invest the additional time, money and effort to put together a community project to build the necessary bridges and provide foundation material for the trail.
The Halfway Brook Trail is part of a larger plan that includes an additional trail continuing from there to the Feeder Canal Trail. There is already funding in place for this portion of the project.
Queensbury’s extensive trail systems offer something for everyone:
