Join one of our Trail Crews for a day or a full season restoring and building sustainable trails for all!
As a precaution in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended our episodic Trail Crew volunteer events until further notice for the safety of our volunteers. If you would like to be notified by email once we resume these events, please apply here and we will add you to our list to be notified. Thanks!
With over 2,200 volunteers, the New York New Jersey Trail Conference does amazing things to preserve, promote, and protect the trails. Our volunteer Trail Crews are instrumental in being stewards of the land and maintaining the integrity of trails.
Trail Crews build, restore, and create new reroutes of trails when needed throughout parks in New York and New Jersey. Additionally, our amazing volunteer crews build footbridges, create stone stairs, and place stepping stones across streams to generally improve the hiking experience for all trail users! No experience is needed and training is given on site. Be part of a team that gives back to the trails you love and enjoy creating solutions that last generations.
The only qualifications to joining the team is a sense of enthusiasm and willingness to work hard surrounded by stunning vistas.
