A Beautiful Weekend For Outdoor Activities

Hope you all enjoyed this beautiful fall weekend, doing all the outdoor activities you appreciate.

The leadership of Open Trails NJ participate in a broad range of activities including hiking, kayaking, geocaching, hunting, enduro, photography, 4×4, etc. Our organization is dedicated to preserving the rights to the forest for all outdoor enthusiasts, whatever your hobby of choice.

Closing Roads is a Failed Policy

In all the township meetings and newspaper articles,  the DEP has been quick to show pictures of Jemima Mount, using it as an example of why roads must be closed to prevent impact to the forest.  But did you know that Jemima Mt. has been closed to motorized vehicles for well over a decade?  Ironically, the DEP has been showcasing how the policy they are promoting has been failing for over 10 years!
