Central North Jersey ‘Highland Warriors’ Strike Again–and We Thank Them for It

Will Hurricane Sandy trail cleanup ever end? We hikers owe trail volunteers no end of thanks for their ongoing work keeping our trails clear and safe for our passage. We welcome this report of a recent project on the popular Terrace Pond North Trail from Central North Jersey Volunteer Co-chairs Bob Jonas & Estelle Anderson.

A small contingent of members of the Highlands Warriors Trail Crew have moved portions of the footbridge over the Green Brook back into place. This bridge, which is on a section of the Terrace Pond North Trail, is located adjacent to the Warwick Turnpike in West Milford, NJ.

Although this foot bridge was well above the high water mark, the last tropical storm took out the ramp and the hand rail was destroyed by a falling tree.

The water was cold and the rocks slippery but once again the Highland Warriors were up to the job and they did it well. Now all has been repaired and it’s open to the public.

Members of our crew were: Jim Mott; Keith Scherer, Trail Supervisor; Nick McKenna, Asst. Trail Supervisor; Adam Rosenburg and Glenn Oleksak, Highlands Trail Supervisors; and Bob Jonas Trail Crew Leader.
