About the Palisades Crew

The Palisades Trail Crew is continuing work on a new, 7-mile multi-use trail for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians in Sterling Forest State Park. If you enjoy working outdoors and have a thirst for knowledge, the Palisades Crew wants to meet you. 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 project involves a variety of tasks, such as: 

  • Opening trail corridors
  • Trail tread construction focused on sidehilling and some rock work
  • Erosion mitigation and drainage
  • Finishing work 

Where We Work

The crew is continuing work in Sterling Forest State Park on the new multi-use loop trail that will be partly co-aligned with the existing Redback Trail. 


No experience is necessary.

We provide on-site training for each worktrip.
