Hunterdon County is located on the western edge of New Jersey and home to commuters to New York City and Philadelphia. Hunterdon is home to growing towns and shopping areas, as well as relaxing rural areas, a far stretch from the urban areas stereotypically associated with New Jersey. The County is a recreational paradise and a vibrant business hub all packaged in one 437-square mile destination. Hunterdon County is home to 8,000 acres of parkland, vineyards, wildlife and historical treasures teeming with places to visit and things to do and see.
Get to know Hunterdon with a stroll or ride a bicycle the length of the canal path along the Delaware River from Lambertville to Frenchtown or along the many miles of scenic country roads. Equestrians can saddle up a horse and ride the length of the Columbia Trail. Hikers have the option of any one of the many preserved wildlife parks and fishermen hail from far and wide to sample the trout fishing in the Ken Lockwood Gorge.
Rail service to the northern part of the county from Newark Penn Station is provided to High Bridge, Annandale, Lebanon and Whitehouse Station by NJ Transit's Raritan Valley Line. The Norfolk Southern Railway's Lehigh Line (formerly the Mainline of the Lehigh Valley Railroad), runs through Hunterdon County.
In addition, The Link operates demand-response service across the county, as well as fixed-route service in Flemington. Trans-Bridge Lines also provides service to New York City, as well as several towns/cities west in Pennsylvania.
