Condition reports and resources for hiking trails in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Hiking trails can change due to damage from storms or flooding. We’ve gathered some resources that list conditions as well as closures for major trails and parks.
This page is for reference only. Trail situations should be reported to the individual park office directly, or the NY-NJ Trail Conference.
We’ve attempted to have the most current info here, but the best course is to check the park’s site before heading out.
