Position Details:

Come join us in preserving the Hiking Trail in historic North Jersey 

Both the Appalachian Trail and Highlands Trail cross into New Jersey from across the New York state line here. From Ringwood and Wawayanda in the north all the way down to Morristown National Historic Park and the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge further south, the heart of northern New Jersey offers a breadth of beautiful hiking opportunities.     Job Description:          With over 1700 volunteers, the New York New Jersey Trail Conference does amazing things to preserve, promote, and protect the trails. None of this could be done without the 1400 Trail Maintainers. Each Trail Maintainer is assigned to a section of trail that is their responsibility to ensure is the best possible trail experience for all users. Duties include, cleaning the Trail of debris, making sure that the trail is well marked, and reporting major issues to their Trail Supervisor.  Each Maintainer is expected to go out to their Trail Section at least 2 times per year and report back their accomplishments 2 times a year. Training is provided in our Introduction to Trail Maintainer classes or with your Trail Supervisor.     We currently have openings in the following parks.
