|Park Description:|| |
The park consists of a recreation trail that runs parallel to the New Jersey Transit Line railroad tracks with 10 fitness stations along the way. Not a rail to trail conversion, but a rail and trail combination. It’s a right-of-way developed creatively.
|Trails Overview:|| |
Aside from local residents using the trail for the sheer joy and utility of exercising, it’s possible to hike/walk along a paved pathway from NJ Transit’s Convent Station to Washington’s Headquarters in Morristown, and then continue on a spur of the Patriots’ Path (blue blaze) to Frelinghuysen Arboretum. The main Patriots’ Path (white blaze) leads from the Arboretum to extend further an out-and-back hike.
