The unveiling is open to the public and will be taking place at the Patriot’s Path
Trail entrance on Dolly Bridge Road in Randolph. Local fire and police
departments, EMS, and veterans will be in attendance.
- The September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance, in conjunction with the Morris County Park Commission, will be celebrating the unveiling of the first trail blaze on the September 11th National Memorial Trail, a 1,300 mile tribute to first responders and those who perished on September 11th 2001.
- Beginning in 2004, the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance was formed to establish a memorial trail that links both the planned and existing memorial sites dedicated to September 11th, including the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Flight 93 Memorial. The board currently consists of 12 members, each with their own unique tie to the cause.
- The trail is shaped as a triangle to forever connect these locations, and serves as a symbol of resiliency and character.
- In addition to linking the three national memorials, the continuous trail also passes through over 50 landmarks such as the Eastern Continental Divide, Delaware Water Gap, and Morristown National Historical Park, and is accessible to automobiles, hikers, and bikers.
