|Park Description:|| |
The Patriots' Path is a trail-and-greenway system in southern Morris County - and beyond -- which links federal, state, county, and municipal parks, watershed lands, historic sites, and other points of interest. Most of the hiking, biking and horse trails lie along the corridors of the Whippany, Black and Raritan rivers.
Patriots' Path stretches from East Hanover where it connects with the Lenape Trail in Essex County to Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Sussex County and the Village of High Bridge in Hunterdon County.
|Trails Overview:|| |
The Patriots' Path consists of a main east/west trunk route [white] and several side trails [blue or red blazes]. Most of the main trunk is open to bicycles, and portions of the route are paved. Many of the side trails are for hiking only and many parks linked to it do not permit dogs. At places it is co-aligned with other trails, so it is important to look carefully for blazes at each intersection.
* A 6-mile hiking-only segment of the Patriots' Path traverses the Morristown National Historical Park [blaze: blue path-and-tree-logo on white].
There are multiple access points over the 35 miles of trails. For directions, parking areas and points of interest along the trail in Morris County use the Contact Information below and follow link to the Patriots' Path.
