Experience Jockey Hollow

Come explore Jockey Hollow!
First stop by the Visitor Center to get oriented to the story of the winter encampment of 1779-1780. There are several small exhibits, a Gift Shop, and the park film located in the here. The park film is approximately 15 minutes in length and provides more details on the winter encampment of 1779-1780. A full length version of the film, approximately. 28 minutes, can be purchased inside the Gift Shop. The Gift Shop is managed by our park partner, Eastern National, and contains a variety of items fit for any visitor. Books, videos, posters, t-shirts, mugs, and other souvenirs can be purchased inside the store.
Once done at the Visitor Center, hop in your car and begin your journey along the tour road. Swing into the Wick House parking lot and visit the historic home of Henry Wick. When your visit there is complete, continue on the tour road until you reach the Soldier Huts parking lot. You can park there and walk up the hill to see the huts close up OR you can enjoy the view of the huts on the hillside from your car. As you continue along the tour road, other stops include the Grand Parade, the New York Brigade parking lot and restroom, the Trail Center (where most of our trails intersect each other), and then you'll end up right back at the Visitor Center upon the drive's completion.
