The northwest most counties of New Jersey are boarded to the west by the Delaware River. Old Mine Road runs along the Delaware River from Montague and NY State to the Delaware Water Gap Recreational Area and is considered the most beautiful road trip this side of the Mississippi.

There are numerous historic rivertowns that you may also consider checking out on your travels. Belvidere is a historic Victorian town on the banks of the Delaware and Pequest Rivers and well worth visiting for those that have an appreciation for architecture. Phillipsburg was once a bustling town – a town where 3 canals and 5 rail lines converged. If you are a lover of art, high fashion or antique shopping then Milford, Frenchtown and Lambertville are towns that all warrant a detour from the trail.

Clinton and High Bridge are situated on the banks of the Raritan River and offer great views of the river from the famous Red Mill Village in Clinton or the best kept secret of Ken Lockwood Gorge in High Bridge.

There are plenty of other things to see and do and we have broken them up by county below to help you plan a day or a weekend getaway out in beautiful Northern New Jersey.
