About the Crew

The Harriman Trail Crew constructs new trails and rehabilitates eroded and damaged trails. This year, a major part of our work will involve continuing efforts to improve and repair trails in the western part of the park, in particular the Pine Meadow Trail, Triangle Trail, and the 100 year-old Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail.

If you enjoy working outdoors and want to learn more about how sustainable trails are built, the Harriman Trail Crew wants to meet you. The team will be hard at work each weekend, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get out there and have some fun on the trail with us!

Work trips are led by Trail Conference's on-staff field manager and Conservation Corps members. The projects involve a variety of tasks, such as: 

  • Sidehilling 
  • Quarrying stone 
  • Creating crushed stone (with mash and sledge hammers) 
  • Setting rock steps 
  • Reestablishing vegetation

Where We Work

Volunteer with the Harriman Crew to build and repair trails in the western part of scenic Harriman State Park.

Training

No experience is necessary! Beginners are welcome and we provide on-site training for each worktrip.

Register to Join Us!

You can join our Conservation Corps Crews on weekends through mid-October. Feel free to come out for the whole day or just a few hours – every bit helps make a huge difference. Please check out the crew's upcoming events and register online so the crew will have safety gear and equipment for you.
