Many thanks to our fearless trail clearing crew who opened up the Stickney Trail on April 28: Al, Anne, Lisa, Carrie, Lynnette and Marilyn! We battled lots of giant downed trees, Olive trees and Multi-Flora Rose Bushes and despite a few battle wounds, we were victorious!

new! There is significant damage to most trails due to the recent storms. Please report downed trees and other issues to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be partnering with the county, township and hiking group to open trails back up. Look for upcoming RTA trail clearing sessions and please try to donate a few hours of your time.

The parking lot on Summer Road to access the Pleasant Run Greenway and Lazy Brook Greenway has been expanded to accommodate a few horse trailers.
We have learned that the Cushetunk trail section in Clinton and parking lot by the train tracks on Old Mountain Rd are not open to equestrians. We are pursuing this with the County Parks Advisory Board. For the Readington trails in Cushetunk, you can park at Pickell park.
Plans are underway to expand the parking lot in the field next to tower field to accommodate horse trailers. More to come on that...
Portions of Cole Rd Greenway East (Tower field) have been leased out to the Profeta Farm for organic hay production. Expect to see tilling, ploughing and seeding of the soil. As an alternative, trailers can park on Morningstar Road off Hillcrest. Also trailers can park in the first field at the trailhead at the southern end of Cole Rd. Pull in through the trailhead and park in the first field on your left. The gate is open.
