Columbia Rail Trail -- RESCHEDULED

Columbia Rail Trail Trailhead Parking Lot
73 Main Street
High Bridge, NJ 08829
Registration is recommended
Come join us on our annual ride along the Columbia Rail Trail. The rail trail follows the abandoned railroad corridor for over 15 miles. The trail runs from the border of Mt. Olive and Washington Townships in Morris County southwest to downtown High Bridge in Hunterdon County. Each county section is managed by its respective County Park System. Named for the Columbia Gas Line that follows the railroad corridor alignment underground, the trail passes through some of the most scenic landscapes in the Highlands region. The South Branch of the Raritan River is a steady “companion” along this trail.
We will all meet at 10:00 am in the municipal parking lot at the High Bridge Trail Head. We will ride out for 15 miles until we reach Mt. Olive. At that point we will ride back to Long Valley where we will stop for a lunch break at the Long Valley Brew Pub. After lunch we will return to the parking lot at High bridge. The duration of the ride will be approximately 5 to 6 hrs.
Hybrid or mountain bike is required.
