Volunteer

One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time.

The Roxbury Trails Committee is run by volunteers who get on the trails and maintain them, replace fallen blaze markers, remove fallen trees and trash, map the trails, and do whatever it takes to keep them open for you to enjoy some time in the woods.

Members of the Roxbury Trails Committee are:

  • Don Banta
  • Mike DiDomenico
  • Sandie DiDomenico
  • Ed Hade
  • Pam Smith
  • Andy Tybus
  • Jackie Vitiello

Roxbury’s Adopt-A-Trail Program

Having a favorite trail in town to hike can feel like a wonderful getaway close to home. When your piece of solitude is broken by trash or damage, you may feel like restoring it to its pristine, earthy condition.  

The trails committee members do their best to keep the trails in top condition, but there are always new projects to tackle, and storm damage to clean after. We could use your help! Please consider adopting a trail; available trails include: Veterans Park blue, yellow and green trails, Ledgewood Park trails, Ice Age trail, and Riggs trail.

A sign naming you/your family/your business/group will be posted showing your affiliation at the kiosk of the trail.  Responsibilities would include:

  • Signing of contract for a one-year agreement
  • Minimum trail clean-ups of two times per year, early spring and early fall
  • Gloves and bags will be provided by Roxbury Recreation and DPW Department’s Clean Communities Program
  • Report to Roxbury Recreation any maintenance needed on the trail, such as a downed tree, stream blockage or missing trail markers
  • Report to Roxbury Recreation any damage on the trail, such as graffiti, structures, party spots

For additional information, please contact Roxbury Recreation at 973-448-2016 or sdidome26@gmail.com. We appreciate volunteers like you to help maintain our growing trail system. Thanks!
