NJ Sierra Club’s first hike on the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail!

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Hike the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail in Washington Valley Park (Somerset Co, NJ):  10am. 5 miles, easy pace.

Join us for the NJ Sierra Club’s first hike on the Washington-Rochambeau National Historic Trail!  

Washington Valley Park consists of approximately 719 acres that lie along the First Watchung Ridge in Bridgewater Township. Many thanks to the Eagle Scout Project by Christopher Solan Troup 84 Somerville and W3R-US and the Partnership for the National Trails System intern grant.  We can “March to Victory” hiking the lovely woods trails and cross Middle Brook where in August of 1781 about 5,500 French Troops marched through Bridgewater on their way to defeat the British at the Battle of Yorktown. Christopher’s link details their story and how Bridgewater played a part in the final major battle for America’s fight for independence. www.eagleprojecttrailofrochambeau.weebly.com/

Contact leaders to register for the hike and for meeting location.  There is limited parking at the WRT trail head so we will car pool from the meeting location. Bring water and snacks.  Option for late lunch at a local restaurant in Martinsville. George & Leona F 609-259-3734 or Leona@pineypaddlers.com  (RV)
