Last Covered Bridge

Enjoy mile upon mile of picturesque Hunterdon farmland as you travel toward the Green Sergeant's Covered Bridge, the only remaining covered bridge in New Jersey. The route offers three different loops: 15, 24 or 48 miles long. The two shorter loops begin near Ringoes. The long loop can begin at either Ringoes or Princeton. The entire route is hilly (especially the long loop) and for the most part utilizes low traffic volume rural roads traversing picturesque countryside. It should be particularly attractive when the leaves change color in the fall. Of the full loop, 12 miles wind through the serene woods of the Sourland Mountain Reservation. There are a few villages and two towns along the route, but generally, the ride offers a beautiful day away from civilization.

Where to start your ride: The route description begins at East Amwell School, Wertsville Road, Ringoes. When school is in session, the East Amwell Municipal Building located at Route 202/Wertsville Road is a better parking option.

It really is beautiful there and well worth seeing. I just wish they would stop saying it is the last covered bridge. There is one a few miles from my home on Coverbridge Rd. Cherry Hill, NJ

I biked this in fall of 2010. The Wickecheoke Creek was a really nice find. The route was beautiful and gave me a better idea of what Hunterdon County looks like off the highways. 47 miles is a long ride, thank God for the shorter loops.
