The first phase of the Lake Hopatcong Trail has been built and blazed and is now open for hikers to enjoy!
This first leg of the planned 40-mile trail stretches about 9 miles beginning on the Morris Canal Towpath across from Hopatcong State Park in Landing. It winds through Hopatcong Borough, with several spurs to access the trail, all the way to the Prospect Point Preserve in Jefferson. Now that it’s open, volunteers are needed for ongoing maintenance.
If you would like to adopt a section of the trail to maintain, please see the trail sections and map below and contact firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the list and receive a trail maintainer guide and forms.
