“Takes you from the Historic Village center to the sand airstrip, around Union Pond with waterlilies, along Rome Pond.”— Allison Pierson
Lakehurst Road does not have a shoulder in some areas and cars zip by quickly, but it has fantastic views of the cranberry bogs on both sides of the road in this stretch. The General Store is open weekends from 10-4 and seasonally on Fridays from 10-2 when the jug band practices, has drinks, snacks, bathrooms, guidebooks, and maps.
Here, it turns toward Union Pond, a shallow reservoir for the Cranberry Bogs that fills with waterlilies in the summer. Ride or run along the edge of the pond to the former cranberry bog and cross over to Rome Pond, where Rome Village used to stand. Follow along the edge of Rome wetlands and active cranberry bogs to Lakehurst Road. There is a small pull over area just before Lakehurst Road to park a vehicle and you can start/end here.
