Jockey Hollow Run Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Ten-hut! This short hike traverses the mountain ridge where the Continental Army weathered the hardships of a brutal winter, from 1779 to 1780. The undulating nature of the trail, which meanders from forest to swamp and back again, while passing by several historic structures, helps illustrate why George Washington chose this as defensible place to bivouac. At ease!
Your tour begins on the New York Brigade Trail (NYB), by the comfort station at the northeast end of Jockey Hollow Road. Pick up the blue blazes opposite the kiosk, behind the toilet pavilion, at the southeast end of the parking area. Once past the black metal gate, the wide, straight path enters into a dense forest of oaks, beeches, an occasional black walnut, and other hardwoods."
