Body

Revised 12th edition of North Jersey Trails map set available in print and digital formats.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is pleased to announce a completely revised 12th edition of the North Jersey Trails map set. This two-map set features over 275 miles of marked trails in northern New Jersey, and contains many revisions to the trails in more than 20 parks, including major changes to trail systems in several parks.

The new map set shows the changes to the trail systems at Ramapo Valley County Reservation and Campgaw Mountain County Reservation, which have been completely revamped, with new trails and blaze colors.  To better show the expanded trail network in Ramapo Reservation, a new enlarged inset map of the Reservation has been included.  The updated maps also show the trail blazing changes and relocations in Norvin Green State Forest, as well as trail relocations in Ringwood State Park.  Newly created parklands are shown, including Ramapo Mountain Preserve, Fuller Mountain Preserve, Great Oak Park, and additional Appalachian Trail buffer lands in Wawayanda State Park.  Other parks shown on the map include Long Pond Ironworks State Park, Ramapo Mountain State Forest, Abram S. Hewitt State Forest, and the Pequannock Watershed, and nearly 15 miles of the Appalachian Trail and 40 miles of the Highlands Trail are shown on the maps.

The maps include UTM gridlines, green shading for public access lands, parking areas, viewpoints and other points of interest.  The maps are available in print format, in vibrant color on our popular waterproof, tear-resistant Tyvek; shop online, visit our headquarters, or look for them at Ramsey Outdoor or an outdoor retailer near you.  In addition, they are available in digital format on Apple and Android devices through the Avenza Maps app, including for the first time as a single app map that combines the two section maps; map links are available here.

At only $10.95 ($8.21 for members), this map set is a must-have for exploring these popular parks in northern New Jersey.
