Gravel Grinding 101

12 miles
Gravel Route

This is a good introduction to gravel riding route that begins and ends at the historic Prallsville Mill.

Be sure to spend some time reading about the history of the mill and visiting the historic buildings.

The route starts along the Delaware River before the first of the gravel roads.

The turn is across from Bull's Island Recreation Area. The pedestrian bridge in the park crosses the Delaware River and the towpath on either side.

The quiet back roads take you to the very last Covered Bridge in New Jersey.

Once in Sergeantsville the roads get a bit busier, but offer a very wide shoulder most of the way.

Upon return, take some time to pedal on the Delaware-Raritan Canal Towpath to enjoy and extend the route.

Farmland Ride (Oct 15-18)

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the organizers to "reimagine" the THIRD annual in-person ride through the picturesque farmlands of Hunterdon County on October 18, 2020 (originally scheduled for 6/14/2020). They will instead host a Farmland Virtual Challenge Ride, which will take place over the weekend of October 16-18.
