First in a series of hikes starting in Elizabeth tracing more or less the 1780 route Hessian commander von Kynphausen took (in part) and might have taken had he been successful (he wasn't) marching through the Hobart Gap to destroy the Continental Army in Morristown. 8-12 essentially flat miles at a moderately brisk pace on city streets and park paths. Bring lunch, snacks and water.
Meeting: E-mail (preferred) or phone leader a week before the hike for meeting time and place. Joint Hike. Awful or dangerous weather cancels. Contact leader after 7:00 AM morning of hike if uncertain.
This minuteman statue in Elizabeth marks the spot where von Knyphausen's Hessian and British troops first met resistance from local militias
