Monmouth Battlefield
State Park

Freehold, NJ

One of the largest battles of the American Revolution took place in the fields and forests that
now make up Monmouth Battlefield State Park. The park preserves a splendid rural
18th-century landscape of hilly farmland and hedgerows that encompasses miles of hiking and
horseback riding trails, picnic areas, a restored Revolutionary War farm-house and a visitors
center.

The Visitor center was very informative with several indoor displays and audio/video kiosks.
There is also an interesting scale replica of the battlefield which gives you a great perspective of
the surrounding fields and their historical significance.

There are several trails with Two Main Walking tours.
Walk Number 1 (60 minutes) - Combs
Hill to The Hedgerow and Parsonage starts and ends at the Visitor Center.
Walk Number 2 (90 minutes) - Perrine Hill and The Sutfin Farm starts and ends a short
distance away on the Freehold-Englishtown Rd.( you drive there}.  Be sure to pick up the maps
at the Visitor Center. Both walks are relatively easy thru rolling fields but with very little shade.
Basically the trails run along the perimeter of the battlefields which are now covered in crops
and orchards. I seemed to relate to Walk 2 with the "Molly Pitcher" story and the Ridge where
George Washington rode his horse back and forth urging the troops on.

the bridge and makes an immediate right turn. From then on
-just follow the map as you walk the perimeter of the
battlefield counter clockwise. Easy walking but very little
