The Whippany River
If one morning I walked on top of the water across the river, the headline that afternoon would read: "President Can't Swim."
- Lyndon B Johnson

Another View on Patriots' Path
The Patriots' Path is a gradually developing network of hiking, biking, equestrian trails and green open spaces linking several dozen federal, state, county and municipal parks, watershed lands, historic sites and other points of interest across southern Morris County. The system provides opportunities for passive outdoor recreation while protecting and enhancing the environmental and aesthetic integrity of the stream valleys and uplands through which it passes. Almost 20 miles of continuous path lie between Speedwell Avenue, Morristown and Ralston Corners on Route 24 in Mendham Township and the connecting branch between Sunrise Lake in Mendham Township and the New Jersey Brigade Hut Sites in Bernardsville.
