MidHudsonNews [dot] com is reporting the Olana Partnership has been awarded a $14,400 matching grant from the Environmental Protection Fund’s Park and Trail Partnership Grants program. The grant will fund the design of the trailhead for pedestrians entering Olana State Historic Site from the Hudson River Skywalk from State Route 23. North Road was constructed in 1869, and it served as Olana’s main entrance from the city of Hudson until the estate became a State Historic Site in 1966. Olana’s 2015 landscape design plan included establishing a trailhead, and the opening of the Hudson River Skywalk in 2019 made it the pedestrian entry point. The trailhead design will create a more visible and accessible entrance and it will also integrate the skywalk with Olana’s historic carriage road network.
