Know the New Hiking How-tos
New Maps and Books on the Way
For nearly 50 years, the Trail Conference has been leading the charge in making sure up-to-date trail maps are available in the region.
Several titles, including one new and several revised maps, are expected to be available in the coming months. In addition, our volunteers are excitedly working on guidebooks that may be available by early 2020.
Westchester Trails Map Set
This brand new map set will feature more than 160 miles of trails in New York’s Westchester County. We are in the final stages of production, so keep your eyes open a release date! The set includes three maps: Rockefeller State Park Preserve (the largest state park in Westchester County), Ward Pound Ridge Reservation (the largest Westchester County Park), and Teatown Lake Reservation (the largest privately owned preserve in the county). See the map above covering Rockefeller State Park Preserve, Old Croton Aqueduct, North County Trailway, and more.
Shawangunk Trails Map Set
An 11th edition revision is expected to be available in the summer with several updates to the trails and parklands covered in the northern Shawangunks, including changes in Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve.
West Hudson Trails Map Set
Sterling Forest Trails Map
An eighth edition is expected to be available by the fall. This revision will include various trail updates, including several miles of recently opened multi-use trails in the southeastern part of Sterling Forest State Park.
Walkable Westchester Book
Authors Jane and Walt Daniels have been hard at work on a third edition to this popular guide to parks in Westchester County. Look for this significant update in 2020.
Afoot in Morris Book
This brand new book by a team of dedicated volunteers will explore the many parks throughout Morris County, N.J. This new title is expected to be produced sometime in 2020.
