Walk in the Historic Footsteps of New Jersey’s Revolutionary War Soldiers!
Join Historical Society members for a 1.4-mile hike (60 minutes round trip) to the site of the New Jersey Brigade Encampment. There, interpretative signs explain the remains of the soldiers’ huts and the conditions the American army faced during the hard winter of 1779-80. Trail head parking is available at Morristown National Historical Park located on Jockey Hollow Road (off Hardscrabble Road) in Bernardsville.
Note, the trail is forested and steep in several places. Hikers are advised to wear appropriate shoes.
