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.
