Hunterdon has become New Jersey’s playground for foodies and those seeking to enjoy a scenic rural environment and all that it can offer in terms of food, entertainment and outdoor activity. The Hunterdon 579 Trail is a way to have residents and visitors rediscover the county’s natural resources. Families can also enjoy plenty of farm fun together through The Trail’s many stops that offer farm tours, interaction with farm animals, and the chance to pick their own fruits and vegetables to bring home. Hunterdon County, one of New Jersey’s finest rural retreats, is a huge draw for individuals and families from across the Tri-State area, including New York City and Philadelphia. We have a series of quaint towns lined with over 100 restaurants, bed and breakfasts, vineyards, historic bridges and more. The ‘579 Trail’ is an exceptional way for visitors to experience this special place.
