Two years ago, in January 2019, Amtrak withdrew its plans to install fences and gates along its right of way on the Hudson River, limiting public access to the river. One year ago, Scenic Hudson began work on its Hudson River Access Plan (HRAP), documenting how and where people access the river with the goal of protecting that access. The 2020 Hudson River Access Plan was published in May 2020.

Roger Hannigan Gilson was able to obtain a copy of the new Amtrak plan and reports about it today in The Other Hudson Valley: "Amtrak's Secret Plan to Fence Off Parts of Hudson River." It is recommended reading.
