Thanks to a grant from the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions and the expertise of The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, the Township of Frelinghuysen now has a stewardship plan for a 161-acre parcel of land acquired as municipal open space in 2011, the Frelinghuysen Forest Preserve. A first of its kind in Warren County, the stewardship plan not only lays out strategies for managing the natural resources on this property, but also includes a system of existing and proposed trails that will invite hikers and equestrians into the preserve and ultimately connect, through the recently acquired “Kids Camp” property and the Ridge and Valley Conservancy’s Gnome Hollow Preserve, with the 27-mile long Paulinskill Valley Trail.
