John Jay Community Trail Race

Sun April 6, 2025 Cross River, NY 10518 US Directions


John Jay Community Trail

Donation Goal: $2,500

Bonus Boardwalk Fundraiser!

Over the past 2 seasons of use and observations - plus some changes in drainage patterns - have convinced us we are in need of additional boardwalks for the trail. We need to purchase wood and hardware for these structures which will keep shoes from getting lost in the mud for walkers & hikers on the trail - and during races!


Several benches are also planned for rest and spectator spots on the trail.


Thank you to our generous donors who have gotten us this far. Add your name to the list while we are still fundraising 

We are working to put final touches on several near-completed construction projects as well.

Please donate to help us with this effort. Your contributions are needed and appreciated.

The Final Link Boardwalk, plus seven boardwalks and three big bridges are complete.

Click the links above to see these completed construction projects which earlier donations have funded.

The upper side and lower side of the final link trail set to be shored up by 6x8 railroad ties as retention walls lining the sides of the trails and anchoring the geotextile fabrics have been laid across over 100' of graded trail. 

We need your help with volunteer time and $$ donations! There is still work to be done - some of the work will require large groups and others will require small groups to help. We are always appreciative of help.

We will reach out to volunteers as needed. is our email if you have questions.
