Plans, Proposals and Projects


Stags is the next section of the Tapawingo project, which is a joint project of the NY-NJ Trail Conference and JORBA to upgrade and connect the trail networks at Long Pond Ironworks State Park and Norvin Green State Forest. Originally conceived as a reroute around an unsustainable section of the legacy Hewitt-Butler trail, Stags was designed to reduce the number of turns to avoid building separate trails for hiking and mountain biking. By reducing the number of turns and redefining the trail specifications, Stags could be suitable for adaptive riders. Existing woods roads will then be upgraded to sustainable accessible standards. When completed, Stags will be a 3950′ route suitable for beginner to intermediate adaptive riders, mountain bikers and hikers.

Jungle Habitat Bike Park Closed-Dead

In 2015 the state proposed leasing Jungle Habitat to a private company to operate on a for profit basis. As an alternative to an operator running obstacle mud races, JORBA put forth this proposal. The 2016 RFP for a mountain bike facility imposed an unrealistic financial cost as to make this project uneconomical.
