Written Directions

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.

Scenery

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.

Drive Enjoyment

Fairly smooth winding, rolling 2-lane road whose speed limit ranges from 15 to 55. Some twisties.

Tourism Opportunities

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.

I love this route. I just did it not to long ago and very much enjoyed it. I have one big recommendation. Instead of staying on 519 up in High Point. Follow on Rt 23 and go through High Point that way. Especially if you like the twisties. Rt 23 going down the mountain was just repaved and it's a lot of fun. I ended up doing that section 4 or 5 times.

From Milford, NJ all to they way to High Point is and amazing ride. Some really fast sections in Sussex County with good turns. From 519 near Rt. 23 take Rt. 650 over the Mountian for some amazing scenery. All the back roads in Warren and Susex County are quite a bit of fun for any style of bike and or rider.

Take time to stop in Beemerville (yes that is the name of the town) and see the Space Farms Zoo and Museum. This zoo displays some healthy animals from all over the world--they are clean and well fed. See lions, tigers, and bears. Also see the nice collection of antique motorcycles and cars. Have a buffalo burger too!
