I visited Jockey Hollow immediately after visiting the Washington Headquarters Museum and the Ford Mansion and Museum. One has to drive 10 miles from there to get to Jockey Hollow. I first went to the Jockey Hollow Visitor Center. They had a replica of a soldier hut which was very interesting and also a book and gift shop. After that you can do a self-guided driving tour. The main thing to see is three soldier huts. One needs to climb a long hill on foot to get to where the soldier huts are located. It was a very hot day so I decided just to stop halfway up the hill and take some photos. I think the Washington Headquarters Museum and the Ford Mansion Museum are "must sees". Jockey Hollow is worth a quick visit and for me, seeing the replica of a soldier hut in the Visitor Center and seeing the actual huts from a distance were good enough.

My wife and I visited Jockey Hollow today to check out the spring blossoms and plants in the Tempe Wick Farm area. It’s been cool so things were slow coming out, yet we enjoyed the beauty of the apple blossoms we saw and of course the fresh air.

After finding the visitors center we walked the short distance to the Wick House ( which was not open yet due to covid. We were able to look inside and Ann, a volunteer in costume was very informative. From there we found the yellow trail which we were told was 2/12 miles. It was a very pleasant afternoon.

Today my wife and I visited beautiful Jockey Hollow to take pictures of the autumn colors. While walking around the Tempe Wick Farm we were surprised to find a new Smokehouse Exhibit located by the Wick Family House. This exhibit brought back memories of my grandfather’s Kentucky smokehouse filled with delicious country smoked hams.

This visitor center is quietly tucked away from the hustle of Morristown. It's part of an easy loop tour with a few great places to stop, including seeing the replicas of the soldier's huts.

Jockey Hollow is a beautiful park. You can drive through on the tour road or park and walk some trails. It’s so peaceful and quiet here and a perfect place to walk in the outdoors.

COVID-19 has opened my eyes wider to see the beauty in things I’ve taken for granted, even the walks in Jockey Hollow. Last week we drove by Jockey Hollow and sadly it was still closed. When they finally re-open I’ll be ready with my camera, face mask, and practicing safe distancing on the trails so I can enjoy what nature has to offer. Until then I’ll be looking at pictures taken of some of the wildlife I’ve seen in Jockey Hollow.

I grew up in the area and learned all about the hardships of winter suffered by the Continental Army at Valley Forge. But then I came to this park and learned that the winter here was even harsher than at Valley Forge. Iwondered why they didn't teach that. But it turns out the experience they had at Valley Forge helped them survive the winter at Jockey Hollow.

There's a small visitor center and the Wick Farm are all worth a visit when open. They also stage reenactments every year so you might want to visit then. The park also has several miles of hiking trails (easy to moderate).

This is a great area for a drive. We stopped here after visiting the Ford Mansion/Washington's Headquarters in nearby Morristown. The Visitor Center has a replica of a soldier hut and a path leads to the simple Wicke House. The gardens look like they would be amazing to tour during the growing season.

I always enjoy driving through Jockey Hollow and always have to walk around Tempe Wick house. Beautiful little roadway in and out. Fair amount of people running, with strollers and horse riders - good use of a wonderful park.

However, it never ceases to amaze me how they change the roads there, put in new parking lots, build a visitor center (which was closed when I went) and basically spend more money on the park.

As the old saying goes: "If it ain't broken, don't fix it", I have been going there for 50 years. I have seen many changes, not that they are bad but they don't seem necessary. But I suppose the people working there have to do something with money they get, so they spend it, to show they are doing something.
