Driving the Byway

  • Beginning at the intersection of Route 206 and River Road in Montgomery, the route runs north along River Road on the west side of the Millstone River, across the causeway linking Millstone and East Millstone, and south on Canal Road through Franklin Township.
  • The route proceeds into Kingston by way of Kingston-Rocky Hill Road and turns south for a short distance on Route 27 before heading north again on Kingston-Rocky Hill Road by way of Church Street in Kingston.
  • The route then crosses the D&R Canal and the Millstone River on Route 518 and turns north again on Montgomery Road, in Rocky Hill, past the 1860 house, to Route 206 and River Road.

Driving the New Crescent Avenue Section

  • After traveling along River Road in Hillsborough and Montgomery Township, continue on River Road along the Millstone River.
  • Rather than making a left on Washington Street (Route 518) to finish the original byway route, continue straight at the intersection of Montgomery Avenue and Washington Street by crossing Washington Street to Reeve Street (formally Church Street).
  • Drive a short block to Crescent Avenue (formerly South Street) and make a left at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and Reeve Street.
  • Continue straight at the intersection of Crescent Avenue and Princeton Avenue. Bear right at the intersection of River Road and Crescent and follow River Road (County Route 605) into Kingston.
  • Turn left onto NJ Route 27. This section ends at Kingston Lock, which provides parking, a gateway and a base for the southern end of the byway.
