Old Mine Road

More Details

Old Mine Road provides cyclists the opportunity to ride parallel to the Delaware River through Worthington State Forrest and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area while catching glimpses of the roaring brook and falls filtered through the trees as the road climbs toward Millbrook Village, a 19th-century town recreated. The southern access point lies just off Interstate 80, in the shadow of Mount Tammany. The first six miles hug the base of the Kittatinny Ridge. Eventually the road swings away from the river and the landscape opens up. High grass fills the fields and an occasional barn fills the landscape.

Both road and mountain bicycles are suitable for Old Mine Road. Riders share the road with park traffic. Old Mine Road provides cyclists the opportunity to ride parallel to the Delaware River through Worthington State Forrest and the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
