Trail Use Policy

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (Trail Conference) recognizes that final decisions about permitted trail uses lie with the managers of the lands on which the trails lie. The role of the Trail Conference is to make well-considered recommendations regarding trail use designations and associated education and enforcement activities.

This policy presents guidelines for use by Trail Conference volunteers and staff in developing recommendations regarding permitted trail use decisions. It also outlines recommended actions by land managers in the development of trails use decisions. The scope of the policy is all trails within the geographical area served by the Trail Conference.
