EVENTS & NEWS
Members Only Guided Trail Ride- April 1st
The TTA TRAIL COMMITTEE would like to invite you to join us for guided trail rides on Saturday, April 1st, 2023. (not a trick!)
We will be highlighting the newly recleared Uptom Pine Trail (5 1/2 miles) which is located in the Bissell Road/Rockaway Road/Potterstown Road area. Trailer parking will be decided as we form groups of 6 including guides.
We may also offer (depending on responses) other trail options.
Please send an RSVP email (before March 27th) including your phone number to Joy Custer at email@example.com if you are interested. We would like to contact you by phone to assure that you get the best parking assignment for your trailer as we will not all be parking at the same location.
FIRST COME FIRST SERVED...Our last guided ride was nicely attended.

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.
