Scenic Byways in New Jersey


Warren Heritage Scenic Byway

Located in the southern part of the Highlands, the Warren Heritage Scenic Byway travels from Greenwich Township to Hackettstown in Warren County. It is locally known for its scenic Highlands setting, rolling fertile valleys and streamside views. This historic roadway segment traverses the region's distinctive mountain ridges, Scotts Mountain, Pohatcong Mountain and Point Mountain, as well as the watershed of three streams, the Lopatcong Creek, Pohatcong Creek and Musconetcong River. The valleys between these forested ridges are home to agricultural areas and feature the Pleasant Valley, Port Colden and Beattystown historic districts.

Along this byway, motorists can view the Morris Canal, which in 1831 stretched 109 miles and required 34 locks and 23 water-powered inclined planes to overcome the greatest

Also, along the byway, is Thomas Edison's "Concrete Mile", which was constructed in 1912, as an experiment using Edison's concrete. Both of these historic sites make this byway a memorable ride.
