Position Details: 
Trail Maintainer
Enjoy breathtaking views while helping to maintain the trails in West Jersey

Most famous for the breathtaking Delaware Water Gap, northwest New Jersey is also home to spectacular hiking in High Point State Park, Stokes State Forest, Worthington State Forest, and more. Far from the metropolis of New York City, the trails in this area often have a more pronounced sense of remoteness and wilderness that many hikers crave.

         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.
