Randolph’s trail system currently runs a 16-mile course through five parks, the Clyde Potts Reservoir Watershed and 2,000 acres of pristine open space. The trails link together schools with neighborhoods and connect to Patriots’ Path at Combs Hollow and Old Brookside. Open year round, the trails can be used from dawn to dusk.
The trails system is expected to continue to grow and improve as we continue to pursue easements and funding to expand our trail network. The Township funds 90% of design and construction costs through state grants and developer contributions. To date, over $1.5 million in state grants and developer contributions has been invested in Randolph’s trails. A Trail Master Plan is available to view on the Township website or downloaded here.
