KICKOFF DAY – 4/21/2018
A kickoff event including vendors and family entertainment will be held on April 21, 2018 at 11:00 AM at the corner of Main Street and Scott Avenue in Castleton. We hope you will join us!
The Castleton-on-Hudson Main Street Association, which is re-invigorating the Village’s Main Street and riverfront, is launching an exciting new initiative that will increase downtown activity, attract visitors, and create a Castleton “buzz.
Q: What is the Main Street Mile?
A: The Main Street Mile is a great way to explore the character of Main Street and the scenic views of the Hudson River while getting some exercise. Stroll along the businesses on Main, meet with your friends and enjoy the benefits of physical activity. The Main Street Mile is marked with signs providing a map, directional arrows and distance markers so all you need to do is follow the signs. The path is also defined with a stenciled image on the sidewalk.
Q: Why a mile?
A: The distance is designed to provide an easy activity that everyone can participate in. The one-mile route typically takes individuals 20-25 minutes to complete which is easy to fit into daily schedules. The average person takes 2,000 to 2,500 walking steps per mile which is a good start towards achieving your recommended daily activity.
Q: Is it accessible?
A: Parking is available along the street or at the two village lots. The route is pedestrian friendly and follows sidewalks. It is a mostly flat walk with a total elevation gain of approximately 41 feet. The sidewalks have curb cutaways and are lit by street lights.
