Eagles Nest and Heron Rookery

22 miles
Road Route

Ready for some bird watching? This route begins and ends at V5 Cycles, Raritan Township, but you could start anywhere in Flemington/Raritan.

From eaglet flying lessons to herons feeding along the banks, there's much to see along this quiet, relatively flat route meandering along the hills of Hunterdon County to just touching on the flatlands of Somerset County. Eagle nests can be found at approximately mile 7 on the high tension towers. Just before mile 10 as you cross the bridge, look to your left and in the trees above the banks is the heron rookery. Be sure to cross the street carefully for a closer look.
