Hurleyville, NY - Come out and celebrate winter with the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Alliance on Saturday, February 24th at 10 AM on the historic O&W Rail Trail in Hurleyville.

The SnO&W started in 2020 as a snowshoe fun run and walk and rotates locations each year to feature a different segment of the Sullivan O&W Rail Trail.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own snowshoes or similar gear if they have them. The first 20 people to arrive needing equipment will receive their choice of either a free snowshoe or microspike rental, depending upon trail conditions. Snowshoe rentals will be available at a discounted rate of $12 through Fortress Bikes, and Morgan Outdoors will be offering a “SnO&W Special” microspike rental for only $5 (normally $12).

“The Sullivan O&W Rail Trail is a trail for everyone, and winter is a great time to experience the trail!” said Heather Jacksy, from Sullivan County Planning and member of the Alliance. Visit the event Facebook page at or call (845) 807-0531 for more information.

Participating fire departments in the Sullivan 180 Healthiest Fire Department Challenge will receive 3 points for attending with five or more active members. 

The Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Alliance grew out of the 2019 Sullivan O&W Rail Trail Feasibility Study and is a partnership of local government entities, non-profits, and volunteers which serve as the stewards for the trail.
