Hiking Our Preserves 

The lands we've preserved provide scenic vistas, protect water and air quality, and provide critical habitat for innumerable plant and animal species, including many considered rare or endangered in New Jersey or nationally. Equally important, these forever-wild places ensure that our children and grandchildren continue to have access to nature in all of its wondrous forms. Many of our preserves offer hiking trails for the public to enjoy.
Are you interested in joining a local walking group? "The Blairstown Walkers" meet every Wednesday at 9 am for a 1 to 2 1/2 hours walk. Many of their walks take place on our preserves, others are local. To get on their list, contact them by e-mail at blairstownwalkers@gmail.com.
