Our crews are dedicated to the construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance of trails.

Have you ever wondered how all those magnificent rock steps, bridges, boardwalks, and bog bridges emerged to make your hike more enjoyable? These “luxuries” are the product of thousands of hours of work by our trail crews. Our crews design, construct, and rehabilitate the hiking trails in our region. With plenty of on-the-job training, newcomers feel right at home on our crews. Trail crews usually meet on the weekends, in groups of six to ten persons. These dedicated men and women head off into the woods, armed with high spirits, rugged determination, and the knowhow to accomplish the task at hand. Our crews work as far north as the Catskill Forest Preserve and as far south as the Delaware Water Gap.
