Crossover Trail Completed
JORBA and Trail Conference volunteers working on the Crossover Trail in Ringwood State Park.


JORBA’s Ringwood Trail Crew completed relocation and improvement of the multi-use Crossover Trail in Ringwood State Park in September 2019. The project was over 6 years in the making.

The final section was the last of at least nine sections that were either realigned or improved. The new route eliminates the steepest, wettest, and most unpleasant part of the old trail and replaces it with a sustainably built path with turnpike, culverts, and bridges to keep hikers and bikers high and dry.

JORBA and Trail Conference volunteers combined forces to tackle part of the trail’s construction at a National Trails Day event held by the two organizations and our friends at REI and New Jersey State Parks.

Thanks to JORBA volunteers and Trail Conference Supervisors Art and Ellen White for playing a lead role in this project and creating another great trail for our community.
