East Hudson Trail Crew

The Trail Conference trail crews are made up of volunteers dedicated to the construction and rehabilitation of foot trails in the Southern New York and Northern New Jersey area. Volunteers do not have to become members of the Trail Conference to participate in these projects, however membership is encouraged so that you can enjoy benefits such as discounts on Trail Conference publications and with our retail partners.

If you would like to volunteer for any of our work projects please call the leader for information including time and place of meeting. Bring water, lunch and work gloves. We supply tools.

There is work for every level of interest. We offer on-the-job training with experienced leaders.
