Why not pack a lunch and take the family to one of the most historical sites in New Jersey! Easy access by  car or train, depending on which end of Patriots Trail you decide to start.  My suggestion would be to head over to the Jockey Hollow Visitors Center (nestled right outside of Morristown) which is usually open from 9-5 but call if you are coming from a distance 973.543.4030. The center provides walking trails, bathroom facilities and can answer questions about the park.

Walking trails are easy on the kids and adults with very limited inclines. I can attest to that since my daughter insisted I walk part of the trails with her.  Regardless of being a few miles from Morristown's downtown center, the minute you arrive, you feel steeped in history. George Washington and his troops walked some of the very paths you and your family are encountering.  There are log cabins [not the originals mind you!] that suggest the type of living quarters our troops experienced. 

The country's July 4th celebration is just around the corner. What better way to pass along knowledge about our country's history!  Make your visit to Jockey Hollow and the Patriots Trail a history lesson for the entire family!! Visit Jockey Hollow in Morristown.
