In 1920, the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference was formed when local hiking clubs gathered to plan a system of marked hiking trails to make Harriman-Bear Mountain State park more accessible to the public. The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is a federation of member clubs and individuals dedicated to providing recreational hiking opportunities in the region, and representing the interests and concerns of the hiking community. The Conference is a volunteer-directed public service organization committed to: developing, building, and maintaining hiking trails; protecting hiking trail lands through support and advocacy; and educating the public in the responsible use of trails and the natural environment.
