Written Directions

Start out in Weekstown (near the Weekston Community Church), and head west of Weekston Rd and veer right on to Pleasant Mills Rd (route 643) stay on that for a while until you get to the intersection with route 542 (Nesco Rd). Take a right on route 542 and cross over the Mullica River. 542 ends up turning east and then southeast. Stay on it until you can veer off to the right on River Rd (Route 651). Take it east until it runs into route 563 and cross the Mullica River on 563 ... and you'll end up where you started when you get to the intersection of route 563 and Weekston Rd.

Scenery

This route is small but very visually striking. Small rolling hills and twists that circle Mullica river and takes you past the Historic Batsto Village. Tall pines and country roads line either side as you pass small ponds. There are also areas to camp posted along this route. Overall, this is a collection of scenic roads in the New Jersey Pine Barrens that circle a river and pond. Near Old Egg Harbor City and Batsto Village. Its A small circular loop that lot of riders go past but miss.

Drive Enjoyment

On the northern side along Wharton state forest/Batsto village, the roads are newly paved and near perfect. Sweeping turns with straightaways separating them. On the southern side are tighter twists and small hills through country homes and tree canopies. There are several potholed areas on the older roads but none during turns.

Tourism Opportunities

Wharton state park has places to stop and even camp along the ponds and river. On the other side of the route is Old Egg harbor city with a historic area on Philadelphia ave with food and shops.
