Bergen Passaic Chapter

MEETING: Wednesday, ----, 7:30 p.m
"NO meeting July & August"
Meeting at:
NY-NJ Trail Conference, 600 Ramapo Valley Road, Mahwah, NJ 07430



All chapter meetings will take place on the second Wednesday of the month from September to June at the Headquarters of the NY-NJ Trail Conference 

The Headquarters of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is located at 600 Ramapo Valley Road, Mahwah (not Oakland, there's a similar address there). The building is located between Ramapo College and Ramapo County Reservation park.

Trail Conference headquarters (the Schoolhouse) is located on Route 202, 600 Ramapo Valley Road, in Mahwah, just north of Ramapo Valley County Reservation and opposite the turnoff for Darlington Road. The parking lot is small.

We now have permission to park in Ramapo College South Lot, which is lighted. There is a sidewalk all the way to the Trail Conference Building. It is a little farther than the Reservation lot, but has easier footing, and better lighting.

Overflow parking is also available next door at the Ramapo County Reservation, with a short walk through the woods. This parking and trail are NOT lighted, so attendees should bring a flashlight, carpool, or arrive early to park near the building. The path from the reserve parking lot to the trail center begins just to the left of the "do not enter" sign.  


Co-leaders are Tom Bender, Josie Ko, and Elaine Silverstein.
