Stone Steps of Morris County

In any war it essential to have a good view of the battle field. Before satellites, the best view was typically the highest one. During the revolutionary war, George Washington often sent scouts to lookout for the enemy from cliff tops. In Morris Plains, one such hilltop had no easy access so stairs were built (or cut) into the rock side. The location of these stairs was a secret because even those who had visited the place couldn’t easy recall where it was. Now it’s an established trail in a Morris County Park.
