On September 22 and 23, 2021, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) co-sponsored the first-ever New Jersey Trails & Greenways Summit. Featuring two keynotes and six panel sessions over two days, the free, virtual Summit celebrated New Jersey’s exemplary trail projects and highlighted opportunities for expanded trail and greenway networks throughout the State.

The Summit covered a range of topics, including how towns can plan, design, and fund trail projects; how professionals and volunteers can map them; and how trails can play an important role in the environmental justice work of our State. More than 530 people attended the Summit, demonstrating the increased popularity and demand for trails in New Jersey. Click here to watch Summit session recordings.
