Tour 6
South from the Northwest Corner

(Milford, Pa. ) – Montague – Newton – Trenton – Junction with US 30; US 206.
Pennsylvania Line to junction with US 30, 131.7 miles

Between Branchville and Ross Corner and between Andover and Netcong the Lackawanna R.R., and between Princeton and Bordentown the Pennsylvania R.R., parallel the highway.
Many tourist homes, camps, and filling stations; hotels in the larger towns.
Two- or three-lane concrete roadbed except for short stretches of macadam.

From the northern corner of the State US 206 runs almost directly south. It cuts through the backbone of the Kittatinny range, a rugged region of forest, lake, and stream. The central section of the road runs through rolling woodland and farming country, which includes the State's most productive dairying region, and past the Revolutionary battlegrounds of Princeton and Trenton. Southward US 206 traverses a picturesque dairy country, until it reaches the pine woods, berry patches, orchards, and sandy wastes of the Hammonton area.

US 206 crosses the Pennsylvania-New Jersey Line on the DELAWARE RIVER FREE BRIDGE, 0.1 miles east of Milford, Pa. The river is smooth flowing between rough banks of rock and pine. From the bridge the road turns sharply R., climbing the rough face of the Kittatinny (Indian, chief town) ridge.
