Every pleasant weekend seems to bring hundreds of bicyclists to Hunterdon’s rural roads, trout and bass fishermen to our streams and reservoirs, canoeists to the river towns along the Delaware and Raritan, and, of course, golfers to one of the county’s golf courses, including the new links-style course in High Bridge.
Hunterdon County offers horse shows and polo matches, baseball games, picnicking, swimming, even scuba-diving in the depths of Round Valley Reservoir. (It’s pretty cold down there, so bring your wetsuit even in the summer).
From Cushetunk Mountain Nature Preserve to the Musconetcong River Reservation, from the Wescott Nature Preserve to the Hunterdon County Arboretum, from the Beaver Brook Golf Course to the Sourland Nature Preserve, Hunterdon has cliffs, rivers, streams, forests, fields, and marshes for all kinds of recreational enjoyment. Bald eagles are regularly spotted, along with dozens of exotic species of hawks and other raptors. The Hunterdon County Park system contains more than 4,700 acres in 18 areas, and sponsors dozens of nature walks, canoe trips and educational programs. And, did we mention golf?
