1. The Old Camp Road Marker
Inscription. When the population of Jockey Hollow jumped from two or three farmers to 10,000 soldiers, the army had to build some roads. This is one of them, running between two pre-Revolutionary roads; the Jockey Hollow Road and the Basking Ridge Road.

You can walk it in 45 minutes; a soldier slogging through snow probably took a little longer.
