About Us

The Tewksbury Trail Association (TTA) began its commitment to land and green space preservation over 25 years ago with 30 landowners and their horses. Since then, it has grown to over 250 members, with more than 180 generous landowners who join us in our preservation efforts. TTA is responsible for developing, maintaining, and marking the trail network throughout the township.

Our Mission

We are proud to share our Mission Statement: The Tewksbury Trail Association (TTA) is a qualified 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving open land and the natural beauty of Tewksbury Township.


The TTA is committed to cultivating and maintaining ecologically responsible bridle paths for horseback riding and community enjoyment. Through cultivating relationships with neighboring trail associations and local land preservation groups, we hope to foster the traditions of the rural equestrian lifestyle.


The TTA is made up of nearly 300 landowners, riders and volunteers who help to identify, clear, and mark trails.   Our association welcomes all members and supporters with similar interests and commitments; membership is not restricted to Tewksbury residents.

Our Commitment and Activities

In its commitment to the community, TTA volunteers time and financial resources to local charitable organizations including the Mane Stream, Upper Raritan Watershed Association, Tewksbury Land Trust, Tewksbury First Aid and Rescue Squad, Oldwick Fire Company, Oldwick Library, Hunterdon County ASPCA, and Mylestone Equine Rescue, as well as other open space and farmland preservation initiatives. 

In addition, TTA is responsible for developing, maintaining, and marking the trail network throughout the township.

Each fall, the TTA holds its annual trail pace, a timed event where teams of riders race (or just meander) through a well-marked 6-10 mile course to discover and explore the wonderfully scenic Tewksbury trail system.  The team that comes closest to the preset time (not necessarily the fastest time) wins, and the event is followed by an awards ceremony.  The event is open to both members and non-members.  In addition, TTA members are invited to attend group rides such as beach rides, campouts, monthly trail rides, and other social activities. 

Our Board

Get Involved in the Volunteer Program

Our association is made of volunteers, dedicating their time and talent to organize in a legal and operational structure to build and maintain great relations with landowner, plan and maintain fantastic riding trails, organizes events, and brings together people in the outdoors to work on the lands not only for trails but also for land conservation in close cooperation with for example the Tewksbury Land Trust.


For our association to thrive we'd continuously like to engage with volunteers, each with their own passion, availability and talent. We are always interested to meet people with power tools, but also people that can help with tailgate sandwiches for trail clear workers, or editors that can help with our news magazine, just to mention a few.
