2021 Annual Membership Meeting
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. The TTA welcomes all members and supporters with similar interests and commitments; membership is not restricted to Tewksbury residents.
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.
