This 2.7-mile linear park -- formerly the route of the trolleys of the Morris County Traction Company -- consists of a paved path, with a par course for exercise.

 

The park consists of a recreation trail that runs parallel to the railroad tracks of New Jersey Transit's Morristown Line. There are 10 fitness stations along the way. Although the trail directly parallels the NJ Transit line, it actually follows the abandoned right-of-way of the Morris County Traction Company, a trolley line that operated on this route from 1914 until its abandonment in 1928...
