Trail Crew Member | Harriman Bear Mountain

Location Type: 
On Trail

Come volunteer in one of the most historic parks in our region with our West Hudson South Trail Crew.

Description continued: 

Harriman and Bear Mountain are one of the most famous hiking spots in the New York Metro area. With amazing views, a great variety of trails and lakes, it is no wonder that this area is often showcased whenever anyone is talking about places to hike. Bear Mountain is also the birthplace of the Appalachian Trail, with the first section of the trail opening up behind the Bear Mountain October 7, 1923.   Throughout the park there are also historic ruins, festivals, and great spots to stop and have a picnic.

Job Description:

With over 1700 volunteers, the New York New Jersey Trail Conference does amazing things to preserve, promote, and protect the trails, and our Trail Crews are instrumental in maintaining the integrity of trails.

Our West Hudson South Crew restores eroding trails and creates new reroutes where needed in Harriman, along with building footbridges, creating stone stairs, and placing stepping stones across  streams and wet patches, generally improving your hiking experience. No experience is needed, training is given on site. Be part of a team that gives back to the trails you love and enjoy creating solutions that last generations.

The only qualifications to joining the team is a sense of enthusiasm and willingness to learn new things in an unbeatable environment.
