Trail News


IMPORTANT!!  

There have been several reports of people using trails with dogs off leash.  This is unsafe and strictly prohibited.  If you encounter someone, please send us an email at readingtontrailassociation@yahoo.com and provide date, time, location and details.  If possible, a pic from your phone will be most helpful.  We are working with the Open Space committee to create procedures to report instances to the authorities for follow up.


Carrie Croton has kindly volunteered to be our new trail coordinator.   Pls email Carrie your trail clearing hours.  Also, let her know if you need help clearing any trails, and she will get a team together. Carrie’s email is ccroton@yahoo.com


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...
​​

The "Knee Knocker" Trail on Pinebank Road across from the intersection with Roosevelt has a tree down.  We are working to get that cleared.


The Round Mountain White Trail that goes up the mountain off CR 629 in Stanton(across from the Stanton General Store) is in rough shape.  It has been closed to horses due to erosion.


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 at the RTA Trailhead at the southern end of Cole Road.  Pull in through the trailhead and park in the first field on your left.  The gate is open.  

RTA Trail Challenge Recap!

Many thanks to our participants, sponsors, tireless volunteers and hosts (Round Valley Youth Center) for making the trail challenge a huge success!  The weather was picture perfect and the horses and riders all did a great job completing the challenging obstacles in the course.  Our new In-Hand division was very exciting with mustang babies doing an incredible job with the obstacles.  The youngest was only 11 months old!   Thanks again to everybody and we hope to see at our future events!  Click Here for results.  For photos, please visit us on Facebook
