The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is a non‑profit federation of 100 outdoor groups and 10,000 individuals working together to build and maintain 2,148 miles of hiking trails in southern New York and northern New Jersey. We also serve as a liaison with various agencies and as an umbrella advocacy group for the hiking interests in our area. We are active in conservation efforts and work to preserve open space.
