Leading hikes is a great way to pitch in and help out. Lead a hike to one of your favorite destinations. Explore some new territory. It’s great fun.

If you want ideas for routes or destinations–we can match you up with the kind of places you like. If you want to buddy up and volunteer to co-lead with another more-experienced leader that’s great too. Simply talk to one of the club officers for more info. We put together our new hike Schedules twice a year—in April and October.

Trail Maintenance

Want to lend a helping hand? Volunteer trail maintainers trim overgrowth, remove fallen branches and debris, freshen up trail blazes, and report any major problems to the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.

The New York Ramblers maintains two trails as a member club of the NY-NJTC. In Abram Hewitt State Forest, NJ, we take care of the State Line Trail from the hiker parking lot at Lakeside Road to the Appalachian Trail. In Harriman State Park, NY, we maintain the Nurian Trail from Southfields, NY to the Stahahe Brook Trail. Check the Schedule for dates and details.

Thank you!

Just a note of gratitude here to all the amazing New York Ramblers who make our outings possible by volunteering their time and resources. Thank you club officers. Thank you council members. Thank you committee folk. Thank you hike leaders. Thank you web-host. Thank you one and all volunteers. We couldn’t have this much fun without you. You are the best!!
