Trail Crews and Projects

Trail volunteers at work.

Click here to see the schedule of Trail Crew Outings throughout our region.

The Trail Conference trail crews are made up of volunteers dedicated to the construction and rehabilitation of foot trails in the Southern New York and Northern New Jersey area. Volunteers do not have to become members of the Trail Conference to participate in these projects, however membership is encouraged so that you can enjoy benefits such as discounts on Trail Conference publications and with our retail partners. There is work for every level of interest. We offer on-the-job training with experienced leaders.
