ROXBURY, NJ – There's a reason Roxbury Councilwoman Jaki Albrecht plans to attend tomorrow's ribbon-cutting ceremony for a trail system in Mount Arlington: The meandering pathways benefit Roxbury too.

Mount Arlington’s Lake Rogerene Trails system, to be celebrated 9 a.m. at the pathway's trailhead, interchanges deep in the woods with Roxbury's 1.3-mile Ice Age Trail at Orben Park. In fact, the Lake Rogerene Trails trailhead is situated on Orben Drive right up the road from the trailhead for the Ice Age Trail.

Both trails wind through the hilly woods northwest of Lake Rogerene and east of Shippenport Road.

Albrecht said she recently joined Mount Arlington Mayor Michael Stanzilis and other Mount Arlington officials in a Zoom discussion about trails. She said the connection between the two municipalities’ pathways was mentioned in the chat.

“This gives a great opportunity to residents of Mount Arlington and Roxbury to see all the great natural features up there, especially in winter when the views open up,” Albrecht said.

The ribbon-cutting for Roxbury's Ice Age Trail took place in May 2014.

The Mount Arlington trail system cost about $378,000 to preserve as open space. About $297,000 of that came from a Morris County Trails Grant Program.
