We're a community of outdoor-lovers who have been caring for trails and parks since 1920. Our passion is empowering people to get outside and have safe, enjoyable experiences connecting with nature. We work where parks need extra resources to maintain trails, protect the ecosystem, and assist visitors. In fact, there’s a good chance your last hike, trail run, or ride was made possible by some of our 2,000-plus dedicated volunteers.

Here's How You Can Help

Our volunteers would be super grateful if you could show them a little love by tagging your trail photos with #traillove and @nynjtc. Help us spread the word about their good work!
