Love Exploring selected the Historic Old Mine Road as the most scenic ride here in the Garden State. According to Wikipedia, "Old Mine Road is a road in New Jersey and New York said to be one of the oldest continuously used roads in the United States of America."
Love Exploringsays "Routing through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Old Mine Road has a history stretching back some 250 years. The narrow, forest-edged roadway follows the path of the Delaware River and is named for the historic copper mines at Pahaquarry. Drivers should keep their cameras on hand for the Delaware View House, an abandoned 1837 Greek-Revival farmhouse that once served as an inn."
