Written Directions

Near Oakland in Bergen/Passaic county, take 287 to Skyline Drive/Exit #57. Take Skyline Drive north for about 5 miles and it will end by running into the Greenwood Lake Turnpike (Rt 511) ... here you want to make a right and take this road all the way to West Milford. Near West Milford the road name changes to Marshall Hill Rd. Continue on this road into West Milford and then you want to take Macopin Rd (Rt 693) south out of town and follow the signs to Germantown Road and your route is done when you hit Rt. 23. From Rt 23 you can go north to get to Sussex County or south to Wayne, NJ.

Scenery

Winding roads up and downhill. great scenery with woods and trees on both sides. Get to the reservoir and you have nice straight-aways and go thru small towns. Pass by Ringwood Manor State Park which features the Ringwood Manner House, Skylands Manor House and Botanical Garden, and hiking, picknicking, fishing, boating, hunting, etc.

Drive Enjoyment

Some construction near Ringwood and West Milford, otherwise very good.

Tourism Opportunities

This route is near Skylands Manor botanical gardens. Also when you go thru Ringwood and West Milford out to Rt. 23 there are tons of fast food and restaurants to grab a bite at.

Once Skyline Dr. Ends make a Rt and follow signs to Ringwood State Forest. Take it all the way out. make a Rt at the first light. It will put you in Sterling Forest. Take that to the end and make a left on to 17A. Take that to the end and follow sign for 210 which will take you around Greenwood lake. Make a left follow it out and it will bring you back to Skyline Dr.

Great ride through a forested area and right next to the Wanaque Reservoir - one of my favorites. I agree with both posts - esp the Seven Lakes Drive, to Bear Mountain then onto 9W - this is really and amazing area to ride.
