FORT: Friends of the Rail Trail

Founded in 2008, FORT, Friends of the Rail Trail, is a committee of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy.

This committee supports and bolsters the use of the Albany County Helderberg Hudson Rail Trail. Volunteers from FORT serve as Trail Ambassadors, guiding visitors, patrolling, and serving as trail custodians. These volunteers help to maintain the Rail Trail as a vital community resource which provides opportunities for recreation and exercise throughout Voorheesville, New Scotland, Bethlehem, and Albany.
