Project Description: 


Calling all volunteers! The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has been asked to help the Borough of Franklin Lakes lay out and blaze a new primitive trail system. Come join us as we work to finalize layout, clear debris, clip foliage, rake and level the treadway, and put up new blazes.

No trail experience is necessary, as everything can be taught on the job. This is a great way to get outdoors and start to shake off the winter blues. You can come for a morning work session (9:00am-12:45pm), afternoon work session (1:15pm-5:00pm), or both. Our day will go like this:


Morning Work


Lunch & New Arrivals


Afternoon Work 



If you're interested in joining us, please email Erik Mickelson for more details (including meeting location and contact information). Make sure you tell us if you plan on coming so that we have enough tools for everyone!
