Albany Electric Trail

This proposed 15‐mile recreational trail would begin where Route 203 enters Rensselaer County and would extend north through the Town and Village of Nassau, where it would begin to head west through the Town of Schodack, eventually ending in the Town of East Greenbush near the City of Rensselaer line, in close proximity to Routes 9 and 20. A feasibility study was completed in 2011.

The Albany‐Hudson electric trail will result in the connection of the city of Albany with the city of Hudson. In so doing, trails on the west side of the Hudson River and along the Mohawk River allow for the connection with the very popular Harlem Valley Rail Trail and other trails on the east side of the Hudson.

The Village of Nassau is seeking funding for the first segment through various sources.
