Let us help you get out on a Saturday morning! On the edge of Morristown, this historical park provides a scenic and easy hike for us to enjoy. We will hike an easy trail through forest and past historic recreations of soldier’s huts from the Revolutionary War (winter of 1779-1780). The trail is relatively flat with only small uphill and downhill so it is perfect for beginners.
After our adventure the group will go out for a healthy lunch at http://www.thehealthshoppes.com/contactus.html (Morristown location) Please bring directions with you.
The hike is classified as easy and should take 2-2.5 hours.
The total length of the hike will be between 4 and 5 miles long and we will walk at an easy pace.
This hike is good for beginners!
As with all hikes you must be in reasonable athletic shape.
