The state Department of Conservation and community stakeholders celebrated the new and improved Stony Kill Farm, Woodland Trail in Fishkill Tuesday afternoon.
The half-mile path closed in 2018 after a microburst pushed through the area and knocked over trees.
Since then, efforts have been underway to get it back open with conditions that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
"This trail represents a value that we all have, that the outdoors is for everyone," said Zach Belis, of Excelsior Conservation Corps.
"This woodland trail provides a tremendous opportunity for people with physical disabilities to connect with nature in a woodland setting, which is not always possible," said Lisa Tarricone, the executive director of the Taconic Resources for Independence.
The trail will also be getting new signs and benches.
