Sourland Mountain Loop
Farm Valley Roads, Mountain Climbs, Silent Woods, and Historic Landscapes
I live in the Sourland Mountain region and love to ride my bike in the area. Although it’s a lot easier cruising along Delaware River routes, here are photo’s of a great loop over the Mountain. The loop starts in downtown Ringoes, out Wertsville Road and over the Mountain into Hopewell Borough. Check a map before you go, it gets tricky in the Mountains!

Scenes as you head out the Valley
Over a mile climb up Long Hill Road is a challenge:
Check you maps as you weave through the mountains and enjoy cool boulder strewn forests and babbling brooks:
Stop for lunch, rest, and more in Hopewell Borough
Back on the bike – up the large climb out of Hopewell Borough, rolling through the mountains, take a left on Wertsville Road and back into Ringoes.
