    More Things To Do After The Races!

    Walk/bike the Columbia Trail. website

    The Columbia Trail is a rail trail that begins in High Bridge, NJ, and stretches to Flanders, in Morris County. It was created from portions of the former Central Railroad of New Jersey High Bridge Branch and runs for a total of 16.2 miles (26.1 km). The Columbia Trail is VERY scenic, as the meandering and beautiful South Branch of the Raritan River parallels the trail along most of its route through Hunterdon and Morris Counties. Near the northern terminus of the trail in Morris County is Long Valley, NJ, where the trail crosses a road near a small commercial district. Just north of Long Valley, Patriots’ Path provides links east towards County Route 513 and west towards Schooley’s Mountain Park. A notable portion of the Columbia Trail is the Ken Lockwood Gorge, between Califon and High Bridge (2.5 miles north of High Bridge). The South Branch of the Raritan River parallels the trail through the gorge, and is a scenic fast-flowing small river with recreational activities, especially fly fishing. A 60-foot (18 m) trestle carries the trail over the river in the gorge.

    High Bridge Hills Golf Course High Bridge Hills. website

    is known for providing guests the utmost in personal service, a friendly atmosphere and a beautifully-conditioned course – all at an affordable price. A darling of golfers and the press alike, High Bridge Hills has emerged as Northern New Jersey’s best true links course. The par 71, 6,700 yard layout, routed in an authentic links style, unfolds against spectacular terrain overlooking the beautiful Spruce Run Reservoir. Elevation changes are aplenty, including the dramatic Par 3, 8th hole with a tee-to-green drop of nearly 100 feet over a natural gorge. From the moment you arrive to the final putt, your experience will be among the best of any golf course or country club in the nation. We look forward to your visiting High Bridge Hills, again and again, today and in the years to come.

    Fly Fishing in Ken Lockwood Gorge. website

    The Ken Lockwood Gorge was purchased in 1948 by the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife and has been referred to as “the most picturesque in the state.” The 21⁄2-mile (4 km) stretch of the Raritan River’s South Branch comprises the central feature of this 260-acre (110 ha) Wildlife Management Area. Steep, hilly woodlands host a plethora of flora and fauna including both game and non-game varieties, including a diverse population of birds and mammals.
