The parking lot at Trail Conference headquarters is small, and overflow parking is next door at the Ramapo County Reservation with a short walk through the woods on a trail to the parking lot. This parking and trail are NOT lighted, so attendees should bring a flashlight, carpool, or arrive early to park near the building. In case of snow, both lots will be plowed, but the trail between them will not be cleared.
