Jackson Pathfinders have completed the re-mapping of the Silver Stream Trail off Frank Applegate Road using various technologies - iPhones, handheld GPS, mapping software, etc. The main trail is on the Metedeconk Preserve owned by NJ Conservation Foundation. Also mapped and depicted below is the new Steve Kitay Living Trail which is located on adjacent property owned by Jackson Township, generously donated by the Kitay family. This new Steve Kitay Living trail joins into the main Silver Stream trail on its Northern-most side. Click on the image below for a more detailed view.
The trails are always in need of maintenance such as trimming of paths, collecting garbage, constructing/cleaning boardwalks, etc. We can also work with Boy/Girl Scouts for a variety of projects. Please see our Volunteering page for more information and to submit an online inquiry form.
The main Silver Stream Trail shown in purple resides on 79 acres owned by the NJ Conservation Foundation known as the Metedeconk Preserve.
The new Steve Kitay Living Trail shown in red (which is currently under mapping and construction) connects to the existing Silver Stream Trail. It's located on adjacent property owned by Jackson Township, just Northwest of the Metedeconk Preserve property.
