As the weather continues to get warmer, the Garden State is hitting its peak tourist season. Also hitting its peak: Jersey harvests, featured prominently on Hunterdon County’s “579 Trail,” which stretches from Bloomsbury to Lambertville highlighting farms, vineyards, restaurants, hiking and biking, and more across the county.
Launched in May 2020, Hunterdon County Economic Development said in a press release that the aim of the 579 Trail was to highlight how residents and visitors could explore Hunterdon’s bounty amid COVID-19.
This year, farm-to-table restaurants are being highlighted along with the farmers’ markets and other featured experiences. And, as more restrictions ease in 2021, 579 Trail says it plans to offer more special events.
“We have a series of quaint towns lined with over 100 restaurants, bed and breakfasts, vineyards, historic bridges and more,” said Hunterdon County Commissioner Matt Holt in a prepared statement. “The ‘579 Trail’ is an exceptional way for visitors to experience this special place.”
