The Ten Mile Trail Project

Conceived by the Tewksbury Land Trust as a means to connect preserved lands and optimize their recreational value, the Ten Mile Trail project was initiated in 2017 with the help of the NJ Conservation Foundation. Since then, the two organizations have worked closely together to make this vision a reality in 2020.

 

With the acquisition of an additional parcel on Hell Mountain (which we are working closely with the Township on), as well as the construction of the trail on lands through four TLT preserves on Fox Hill, the Ten Mile Trail will soon be a reality. The County is also working with us to create a means to cross 517 that is safe for hikers, and of course, riders. The trail will also pass through existing easements on Hell Mountain, connect with Hell Mountain Preserve, and then link to NJCF’s Hill & Dale Preserve. 

 

The NJCF, for its part, is working on acquiring a large tract that will allow the trail to connect with the County’s Cold Brook Preserve in Oldwick.  As East meets West, the Tewksbury Land Trust and New Jersey Conservation Foundation will have to find a suitable place to drive in a “golden” spike – our Promontory, Utah -- linking the Ten Mile Trail into a unified network for the benefit of outdoor enthusiasts throughout the township.
