About NJ Trails

Our mission is to make accurate information and maps on preserved lands accessible to the public. NJTA assembles information on trails open to the public, and posts the information on this site. We work in partnership with state, county, local, non-profit land preservation groups and parks agencies to plan more trails. NJTA consists of representatives from the following organizations:

Volunteers select trails, walk them, and write guides for this website. Expert technicians prepare trail maps. Volunteers also test the trail guides for accuracy by taking a walk, following the guide.

Your contribution can help expand and accelerate the work of making more trails available on this site.
