I live close to Jockey Hollow so I can hike and bike. I also like to cross-country ski there it's a bit challenging but fun. In the spring and summer the different shades of green are beautiful when the sunlight shines The Cross Estate and nj Audubon society or close. You can hike all of them in one day!

The trails are so nicely maintained.. I appreciate that they are patrolled as well. No bicycles makes this a dream unlike Lewis Morris Park.

History and beauty. Very helpful Visitors Center---good place to start if you've never been there. Be sure to see Wick House & Farm and the Soldiers Huts. Well-marked system of hiking/ running trails throughout that hook up to the trails in Lewis Morris County Park

This gives you an visual idea of what life was like during that time. Nearby is the Wick House, which was used as a headquarters by General St. Clair,... More

This is a very beautiful park and woodlands that is at the location of the encampments of the continental army during the worst winter of the war. The farm house and barns stand intact and are available for a tour, the soldiers huts have been recreated on one of the hills. Not much else to see there, but it is... More
