Hike Finder map snippetThe trail- and tech-savvy volunteer enthusiasts of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference have developed a brand-new visual Hike Finder Map that links to our online catalog of hikes and parks. This new Hike Finder Map displays point locations that lead to 340 hikes (and counting) from 224 trailheads in 135 parks in the New York-New Jersey region.

Each map point is linked to a trailhead. Click to find links to full descriptions of hikes that start at that trailhead as well as to directions and weather. 

Narrow your search on the Hike Finder Map by typing in a ZIP code, adjusting the level of difficulty and length, and clicking on features such as “Swimming,” “Waterfall,” and “Public Transportation.”

All hikes are written and curated by Trail Conference volunteers, who are on trails constantly, building and maintaining 2,000 miles of trails in our region, and collecting and updating trail data for use in hike descriptions and the production of the best trail maps in the region.

 To check out this new visual Hike Locator map, visit hikes.nynjtc.org. To find information about hiking and volunteering on trails in our region, and to purchase your own sets of the best trail maps for our region, visit nynjtc.org.

All hikes and parks are available on our website and also can be accessed via a text index at nynjtc.org/view/hike.
