Hop in your car and join us for the Fall 2021 Highlands Car Trek this year featuring the historic bridges of the Highlands!
Join us for a 75-mile tour of the forests, scenic vistas, rolling farm fields and quaint villages frozen in time. We bring you to the many places where you’ll say, “I can’t believe this is New Jersey”.
We will start registration at 10:00am at Valley Shepherd Creamery in Long Valley, where you can try some delicious, award-winning cheese made on their farm before you hit the road.*
Our turn-by-turn route instructions include descriptions of the natural and historic features that combine with the region’s legendary natural beauty to make a memorable road trip with places you’ll want to revisit. This year’s trek will feature the quaint, historic stone arch and iron truss bridges that were featured in Skylands Visitor Magazine.
We will finish the trip at Four Sisters Winery, where you can enjoy a delicious glass of vino and a bite to eat.*
There will be a photo contest with a prize; a free ticket to a Barefoot Grape Stomping from Four Sisters Winery! Tag us in your photo on social media, and may the best snapshot win!
