We’re the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, a group of outdoor-loving people who have been protecting trails and parks since 1920. We advocate for open space. We teach stewardship skills and lead trail work trips. We do it all to empower YOU to make a difference in the parks that are important to you.

Here's How You Can Help

Give a Shout Out
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!
Give a Few Hours
Be a trail superhero. If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, come out and help us make trails great. We’ll teach you how trails are built, plus you’ll get snacks and a T-shirt!
Give a Few Bucks
We count on the support of every hiker, walker, and rider to make great trail experiences possible. Your gift helps your trail community!
