According to the Asbury Park Press a section of the Henry Hudson Trail between Atlantic Highlands and Highlands has remained closed since it was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy last October. Monmouth County Parks was in the process of cleaning up the trail when the NJ DEP put a halt to the work in January. In addition, the threat of a lawsuit from E Street Band/Conan O'Brien drummer Max Weinberg and an Atlantic Highlands Judge claiming that the construction of the trail has led to erosion of their properties during Superstorm Sandy could still force the closure of the trail.
The article goes on to say that the County has come to an agreement with DEP and that the trail will be reopened in mid-November. Thanks go out to trail advocates in Monmouth County who kept the pressure on to make sure that this valuable resource is once again open to the public.
