The route bigins in Phillipsburg, NJ which sits just 20 or so miles from Allentown, PA. Pick up Route 519 North in Phillipsburg, NJ just off of Route 22. Simply stay on Route 519 from Phillipsburg to Newton to Colesville. At Colesville you need to get on Route 23 and take it North (left) in to High Point. The first clue you're in the highlands area is your view of the Water Gap in Harmony Township... beeeeaaaauuuutiful. Note: Following 519 is tricky in Newton. And, about 55 of the 60 miles of this route take place on Route 519. Just the last 5 or so miles take place on Route 23.
Rolling rural hills of the "highlands" area of New Jersey. No turnpike exits or chemical plants here. Overall you're going to see some nice farmland and rolling hills and be taken to the highest pont in New Jersey and take in a nice view. If you like rural riding, you'll enjoy this ride.
Fairly smooth winding, rolling 2-lane road whose speed limit ranges from 15 to 55. Some twisties.
Not much goin' on in rural Northwest Jersey (cow tippin?), besides, you're there for the ride aren't you? A few eateries here and there.
