Trail Building

D&R Greenway Land Trust's preservation vision includes trails and open spaces where people enjoy the natural world. Trail building is a vital part of the mission to carefully steward the lands that are preserved for future generations. D&R Greenway Land Trust builds and maintains trails that provide people with safe and appropriate access to preserved lands.

In the spirit of encouraging people to get outdoors and explore nature, D&R Greenway formed the New Jersey Trails Association. The group, comprised largely of volunteers from various environmental and friends organizations, under the guidance of D&R Greenway, provides a free source of walking and hiking resources, including comprehensive trail guides and maps. All trail guides on the website are researched and created using research tools and techniques, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS) data.

If you would like to help with the ongoing stewardship of D&R Greenway preserves, please send an e-mail with trail building in the subject line to Alan Hershey. Include when you are available to volunteer. You may also download and print out a volunteer form and mail it to D&R Greenway Land Trust, One Preservation Place, Princeton, NJ 08540.
