- The Nassau Trail' was originally cleared and established as a hiking trail as part of an Eagle Scout project. Located in 52.4 acres of Green Acres property, the Trail covers a four-mile walk through Borough-owned property. In 2011 High Bridge residents Jeff Oliver, Thatcher Simpson and a crew of volunteers used well-established and eco-friendly techniques to convert the Trail into a flowing, single-track trail. The reconfiguration of the Trail opened up previously difficult areas to hikers.
