Scenery

At the Watchung Reservation, there's Lake Surprise which received its name due to the winding road park planners created. It's a real surprise!!! If you're into horseback riding, there's a horse stable inside the reservation which you can schedule horseback riding in advance. Follow the signs to the stable if you would like to view it (very sexy for you and your partner).

Drive Enjoyment

(This route is for all kinds of bikes and skill levels) Ride at your skill level. Take your time if you're not good at sweeping turns and winding roads. Follow all traffic signs for speed requirements for sweeping turns & winding roads, if you're still learning how to take turns. (again) There is an abundance of nice sweeping & winding roads. When you arrive at the Watchung reservation, you can loop around the route as much as you want, which I believe you will do. The reservation features a river and Lake Surprise if you want to pull over and fish and chill. Good spot of pictures, so please take as much as possible. Ride safe!!! No front breaks in turns!!! The pavement is perfect while riding through the reservation.

Tourism Opportunities

Google any restaurants you want in this area. They have any and everything you may want to eat. There are a lot of hiking trails and fishing opportunities if that's what you're into. There are some camping areas if you want to camp out. I'm not sure if you need a permit but I personally sleep where I want LOL.
