Tour Guides

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) publishes more than 25 bicycle tour guides, including the 238-mile High Point Cape May Bike Route and the East Coast Greenway Multi-use Trail Guide.

NJDOT is releasing three new bicycling tour routes in conjunction with Bike Month. The Jersey City to Hoboken Waterfront Tour is a 14 mile loop that passes through historic and diverse neighborhoods, lively downtowns and spectacular waterfronts. The 17 mile Gloucester County Country Tour connects Pitman, Rowan University, Glassboro Wildlife Management Area and Scotland Run Park. Finally A Gorgeous Ride: The Columbia Trail is a 15 mile multi-use path that parallels the South Branch of the Raritan River in Hunterdon and Morris counties. The trail connects the small towns of High Bridge, Califon and Long Valley and passes through forests, farms and parklands.

These three new tour guides are in addition to the 25 diverse regional guides and feature rides for cyclists of all ages and levels. The guides are available in digital versions that can be used on a desktop computer or on a mobile device as a supplement to printed maps. Route information for each tour guide has been formatted for use on web-enabled mobile devices and for online mapping. These digital versions provide a way to utilize the guides via navigational tools on mobile devices, computer mapping programs or personal Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Cyclists can use a smartphone or GPS to view the tour guide cue sheets and track their progress in real time. The guides have information on nearby attractions and clickable links for more information.

Using the map or the dropdown box, select a tour guide. Each tour guide has three formats* to choose from: Keyhole Markup Language (KML), Geospatial Portable Document Format (PDF) and PDF. Instructions for using these files formats is available. It may be necessary to download an application from the Internet that supports these file formats if you don't have a application already installed.
