The Patriots' Path is a multi-use trail in New Jersey, United States, with a total length of 90 miles (145 km).[1][2]

Patriots' Path stretches from East Hanover, which connects with the Lenape Trail in Essex County, to Allamuchy Mountain State Park in Sussex County, and the Village of High Bridge in Hunterdon County.[3] In southern Morris County, the path travels mostly along the corridors of the Whippany River, Black River, and Raritan River.[4] Different portions of Patriots' Path include bike trails (paved), cross-country skiing, equestrian trails, and hiking trails (handicap accessible).[5] Parts of the trail are along the right of way of the former Rockaway Valley Railroad.[6]
