Delaware Water Gap in the fall


Since 1920, the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has partnered with parks to create, protect, and promote a network of over 2,100 miles of public trails in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan region. This includes the National Park Service lands in the Delaware Water Gap and along the entirety of New Jersey’s Appalachian Trail.

Opportunity Description:

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has a trail adoption program active in the Delaware Water Gap (16 trail segments totaling 31.3 miles).

It’s thanks in large part to volunteer Trail Maintainers that these trails stay safe and accessible. If you love to hike and are interested in giving back to your public lands, consider adopting a trail segment and becoming an official Trail Maintainer. As a maintainer you’ll be expected to submit two reports annually describing your activity during the spring and fall seasons - one full inspection and maintenance trip is required per reporting period, but many maintainers take pride in their trails and make multiple trips a season. Transforming an overgrown path into a neatly trimmed and blazed trail is a very satisfying experience!
