About Us

Morris County Trail Program

The Morris County Board County Commissioners created the Morris County Trail Construction Grant Program to provide grant funding to municipalities for the construction of trails on preserved, public parkland.

In November 2014, the voting electorate of Morris County approved the ballot question to allow trail construction as a permitted use under the Morris County Preservation Trust Fund by a margin of nearly 3 to 1.

The Morris County Trail Construction Program will operate as a collective and collaborative effort of the Morris County Park Commission and the Morris County Office of Planning and Preservation.

The recreational trail use opportunities created by the program will support cultural tourism efforts and enhance the quality of life for the residents of Morris County. The program will rely upon local communities and their government representatives to provide inspiration, planning, and commitment, as well as meeting the matching funds requirement, to make these trail projects a reality.
