Jockey Hollow Historical Park

Let's work off some of that Thanksgiving feast. Join us for a moderately-paced 6-mile hike through Jockey Hollow, site of General Washington Continental Army's[masked] encampment. First timers may want to view the exhibits and the 10-minute film in the Visitor's Center. Visit the Wick farmhouse, wooden soldier huts [re-constructed]; plus more. For directions, use www.googlemaps.com - Jockey Hollow Historical Park.

Sturdy footwear, lunch/snacks, water, extra layers, heavy rain cancels. Although there is no hunting in the park, there may be in a neighboring area so WEAR ORANGE as a precaution. Meet at 9:15 AM SHARP at the Visitor's Center.

    Thank you for joining me on a beautiful day hiking through Jockey Hollow. We were lucky to spot an owl - pretty cool. Six of us did an extra 2.5 miles which were very enjoyable. The after-hike was great and basically overall a wonderful day. Hope to see you all on the trail in the very near future.

    Terry - this will prob take us about 3-4 hours....? Just wondering
    b/c i have to meet up with my folks later in the day. In any case, looking fwd for the hike!

      Nance - Typically my hikes are all day; we take our time - photos, multiple stops - I really cannot put a time frame on how long it will take. However, Jockey Hollow has a multitude of loops and an early out is always an option; you would sign off the trip and head to the parking lot. Hope this works.

    I'm so sorry that I'm cancelling at the last min. but it seems like a stomach bug has hit me hard just several hrs. ago. I'm so disappointed since I was so psyched to be going and meeting people. I will have to catch up with the group on the next hike. Have a great time.

    Sorry, I found something closer that allows me more time to sleep. Good luck to the person who takes my spot.
