New!  The show stopper tree that was down on the Pleasant Run Greenway was cleared up by Al Sr. so  trail is in good shape!  Thanks Al!


New!  Repairs have been made by the pipleine company to the new water crossing on the Bowman Stickney trail connector to Round Mountain. After the new crossing was put in, subsequent storms did significant damage which has now been repaired.  Thanks to those who persevered to get this done!


New! The Round Mountain White Trail that goes up the mountain off CR 629 in Stanton 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.  There is room for 1 trailer to back in and park under the tower.  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.

Pickell Park Trails are cleared and open.

Unless noted, meetings are held upstairs in the large barn at Al and Karen's Crazy Horse Farm, 7 Lazy Brook Rd, Flemington, NJ 08822.

Please wear blaze orange at all times when on the trail, and try and ride between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm and avoid all day Saturday.
