Driving Directions

Proceed west on I-80 to the Delaware Water Gap and take Exit 1 (Millbrook/Flatbrookville), the last exit in New Jersey. Bear right at the bottom of the ramp and head north along the Delaware River on Old Mine Road. The road is only one lane wide for about half a mile, and a traffic light has been installed to regulate the two-way traffic. Continue for 7.5 miles to the Copper Mine Parking Area, on the left side of the road (the parking area is 0.5 mile beyond milepost 7 on Old Mine Road).

Lunch at Old Log Cabin Inn on Rt 46 in Columbia.
