You are walking part of the 1777 historic trail that retraces as nearly as possible the routes taken by the British army during the Revolutionary War.

The 1777 trail represents the route taken by British General Sir Henry Clinton's forces on October 6th, 1777. After landing 2,100 men at Stony Point, he marched North to capture Forts Clinton and Montgomery. At Doodletown, the trail splits. The east branch of the trail follows the march of forces under Sir Henry Clinton and Major General John Vaughn that captured Fort Clinton. The west branch follows the route of Lieutenant Colonel Mungo Campbell's force, which captured Fort Montgomery.

The 1779 trail traces the route taken by Brigadier General Anthony Wayne's Corps of Light infantry in its assault on British fortification at Stony Point just after midnight on July 16, 1779. After a brief but fierce fight, Wayne's men captured Stony Point, achieving one of the Continental Army's most spectacular victories.
