Jockey Hollow is one of three major Revolutionary War historic sites in New Jersey, famous for being the Continental Army’s main winter encampment during the harshest winter of the war in 1779-80. In the past, when the troop visited this historic park, scouts and leaders would hike a trail up and over a mountain and down the other side. When the troop reaches the building that marks the halfway point of the trek, they turn around and do it all again before going to the campsite. It is all worth it, though, because if a scout completes the hike and writes an essay about it, he receives an historic trail to wear on his uniform.
