    I live up in north jersey.
    It seems that the majority of the northern TNJT is paved road.

    Have any of you guys done the northern portion? Are there any cool off road sections up here?! Haha

    To be fair, it's all "on road", some of it is just unpaved. There is gravel in the north, sand in the south.

    I went back pretty far in this thread but couldn't find a clean GPX file of the TNJT. Can anyone help me with that?

    Thank you! What percentage of this route is dirt and pavement?

    Anyone home over here? I'm looking for a tnjt GPX file for goolge maps or gaia...see it posted via google with broken links or behind some fishy looking "give us your data" wall

    Thanks in advance!

    There's an active, well maintained TNJT route but it doesn't follow the exact route that was initially posted here. My friend replicated the route, as close as he could to the original but made it bike & 4x4 friendly. That being said, it does not include the hero sections. It is however driven/ridden 2X's per year & altered due to road closures, "posted areas", etc.
    If you're interested in this route, shoot me a PM

    Enjoy! I'd love to do this route as well. Let me know if you are open to another rider joining you.

    Now that the forests are open, you shouldn't have a problem. It's a good time to go for it since there won't be alot of shore traffic after you clear Belleplain SF

    I am going to try doing the North part in the coming weeks: entering at High Point and leaving at East Windsor. I have a R1150GS and no experience of sand / tough roads.

    I am a slow risk averse rider :D

    Any advice? Any tough sections to avoid?
