Morris County Freeholders - $400,000 funding via Open Space Trust Fund Program to acquire the land, approximately 18 acres. Followed by $296,825 funding award for the Lake Rogerene Trails project via the Morris County Trail Construction Grant Program, not taxpayer monies.
The Trails are .92 miles and will intersect with the Roxbury Ice Trails soon. They are working on other trails that will connect across Mount Arlington that are already under review for Grant Applications.

“Special Thank you to the - Lake Rogerene community for their support of this project."
