Soldier Huts!
Jul 2021
This visitor center is quietly tucked away from the hustle of Morristown. It's part of an easy loop tour with a few great places to stop, including seeing the replicas of the soldier's huts.

Great outdoors with walking shoes
Jan 2021 • Family
Jockey Hollow is a beautiful park. You can drive through on the tour road or park and walk some trails. It’s so peaceful and quiet here and a perfect place to walk in the outdoors.

We’ve missed you Jockey Hollow
May 2020
COVID-19 has opened my eyes wider to see the beauty in things I’ve taken for granted, even the walks in Jockey Hollow. Last week we drove by Jockey Hollow and sadly it was still closed. When they finally re-open I’ll be ready with my camera, face mask, and practicing safe distancing on the trails so I can enjoy what nature has to offer. Until then I’ll be looking at pictures taken of some of the wildlife I’ve seen in Jockey Hollow.

The Winter Here Was Harsher Than At Valley Forge
Feb 2017 • Couples
I grew up in the area and learned all about the hardships of winter suffered by the Continental Army at Valley Forge. But then I came to this park and learned that the winter here was even harsher than at Valley Forge. Iwondered why they didn't teach that. But it turns out the experience they had at Valley Forge helped them survive the winter at Jockey Hollow.

There's a small visitor center and the Wick Farm are all worth a visit when open. They also stage reenactments every year so you might want to visit then. The park also has several miles of hiking trails (easy to moderate).

Beautiful Area Of New Jersey
Nov 2019
This is a great area for a drive. We stopped here after visiting the Ford Mansion/Washington's Headquarters in nearby Morristown. The Visitor Center has a replica of a soldier hut and a path leads to the simple Wicke House. The gardens look like they would be amazing to tour during the growing season.

One of the prettiest drives - Especially in the fall.
Oct 2019
I always enjoy driving through Jockey Hollow and always have to walk around Tempe Wick house. Beautiful little roadway in and out. Fair amount of people running, with strollers and horse riders - good use of a wonderful park.

However, it never ceases to amaze me how they change the roads there, put in new parking lots, build a visitor center (which was closed when I went) and basically spend more money on the park.

As the old saying goes: "If it ain't broken, don't fix it", I have been going there for 50 years. I have seen many changes, not that they are bad but they don't seem necessary. But I suppose the people working there have to do something with money they get, so they spend it, to show they are doing something.

Fun for a Quick Trip
Sep 2019
The Morristown National Historical Park Jockey Hollow site is where General George Washington and the Continental Army encamped from December 1779 to June 1780. I visited because I was looking for nearby sites in my Passport to the National Parks book and the site was neat. The visitor center has some good information and the reconstructed soldiers’ and officers’ huts give a good understanding of just how rough the winter of 1779-1780 must’ve been for Washington and the Continental Army. The site is best if you like to hike as it has many trails over varied terrain. If you just want to stop by and see some Revolutionary War history, this makes for a quick trip.

Had an enjoyable few hours walking on paths at Jockey Hollow. Did the driving tour also. Really liked the visitors center/gift shop.

Beautiful Wick house, soldier huts, and great hiking trails
Sep 2019
Wonderful park combining history with easy walks to the Wick house & soldier huts. Also if you want to do longer trails with up hill climbs there are numerous trails throughout the park forest - fitness is needed for some of the trails as the hills can be steep.

Beautiful Grounds, Likely Great Hiking, But Little to See
Aug 2019
We arrived too late to take in the visitor center so drove through the park stopping at the few things (reproductions of the revolutionary cabins used during the "hard winter" of 1779) and around the exterior of the farmhouse and gardens from that era. There were many trails for hiking, but we didn't have the right gear to tackle any of them. Beautiful surroundings if you're interested in an urban, historical hike.
