Columbia Trail Bike Tour

The Columbia Trail is a converted railroad bed. The trail features beautiful scenery along a relatively flat, compact dirt path. About 5 miles into the trail you will enter the town of Califon. An additional 3 miles and you will find your way across Route 513 to the rest of the trail that ends in Long Valley. Note: this portion of the trail is not marked as well.

Where to start your ride: Take Interstate 78 to 31 North (Clinton Exit). Take 31 North a couple miles to Route 513 North in High Bridge. Stay on Route 513, make a right into High Bridge and then a left at the top of the hill on Main street. The trail head is clearly marked a couple blocks up on your right. Parking is available in a municipal parking lot on Route 513.
