Harriman Conservation Corps Trail Crew
See event page for details.
About the Crew
The Harriman Trail Crew constructs new trails and rehabilitates eroded and damaged trails. This year, a major part of our work will involve continuing efforts to improve and repair trails in the western part of the park, in particular the Pine Meadow Trail, Triangle Trail, and the 100 year-old Ramapo-Dunderberg Trail.
If you enjoy working outdoors and want to learn more about how sustainable trails are built, the Harriman Trail Crew wants to meet you. The team will be hard at work each weekend, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get out there and have some fun on the trail with us!
Work trips are led by Trail Conference's on-staff field manager and Conservation Corps members. The projects involve a variety of tasks, such as:
- Quarrying stone
- Creating crushed stone (with mash and sledge hammers)
- Setting rock steps
- Reestablishing vegetation
Where We Work
Volunteer with the Harriman Crew to build and repair trails in the western part of scenic Harriman State Park.
No experience is necessary! Beginners are welcome and we provide on-site training for each worktrip.
