General Information

Description - New Jersey currently offers two state designated byways, Delaware River Scenic Byway and Millstone Valley Byway.

Located on Route 29 along the Delaware River, the Delaware River Scenic Byway starts in the capitol city of Trenton and travels north through historic communities, agricultural landscapes, and recreation areas. Located in the narrow Millstone River Valley which lies in north central New Jersey, Millstone Valley Byway offers a glimpse into the past when skirmishes between the local militia and British troops played a key role in the Revolutionary War.

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - This state's climate, especially the southeastern region, is affected by the large bodies of water that surround it. Temperatures vary slightly between the northern and southern regions of the state, with the southern coastal area being the warmest. Winter weather can reach the state as early as October and is usually in full force by late November. Winter temperatures average between 20 and 40 degrees F. Spring begins in mid to late March bringing warmer temperatures that reach into the mid 50s. By April the daytime highs often reach 65 degrees F with lows near 40 degrees F. Summer weather can be hot and humid and extends from late May to mid September. Temperatures often reach 95 degrees during this season with nighttime lows near 65 degrees. Fall weather is crisp with low humidity and average temperatures between 65 and 45 degrees F. Because areas in northeastern New Jersey are highly developed they often retain high temperature levels and do not cool as much at night. Precipitation levels in New Jersey are highest from March through August.

Location - Both of New Jersey's byways are located in central New Jersey.
