Ken Lockwood Gorge is one of the most unique places in NJ. You'll think you are in another place but you are in Hunterdon County. The North Branch of the Raritan River flows through massive rocks and a deep gorge for 2.5 miles. There will be fly-fishers in the river and water fowl. Water pounds the rocks and creates eddies and flows. Springs pour from the gorge's walls creating the perfect environment for large, green ferns.
You can no longer drive through the gorge, floods tore out the road in the middle, so we'll meet on the south end where there is the most parking.
To get there, go to the town of High Bridge and follow Rt. 513 north (it is also called Fairview Ave.). Turn right on Mine Rd. At the end of the road turn right on Cokesbury Rd. You'll cross a small river and then take the next left onto Raritan River Road. That leads to the parking lot. The parking lot is pretty small, if we have a crowd, we won't all be able to park, we may have to meet in town and car pool to the lot.
