Jockey Hollow Hike Part Two (04/14/2013)

misc 4 2013 072Last Sunday, our troop explored the Southern unit of the Jockey Hollow National Park — taking a five-mile hike from the visitor’s center over several ridges and across two streams to find the New Jersey Brigade’s encampment site.

With excellent weather and a good crew of cubs, scouts and crew members, we had a fun outing and learned more about the revolutionary war.misc 4 2013 084One of the areas of most fun was crossing the streams on bridges, or in the case of the scouts, by finding rocks to leap-frog across.misc 4 2013 080 (2)

Scouts who completed both trail hikes should author a 250-word essay addressing one of the following questions:

  1. What part did Morristown and the Jockey Hollow area play in the American Revolution?  OR
  2. Why did Washington select the Morristown area for his encampments?

Scouts who turn in their essay with an $8 fee, will later receive a trail medal for completing the requirements.
