Roadside Warren County. The Watering Hole.
This section of Rt 46 from Delaware to Hackettstown was known as Rt 5 between the years of 1916 and 1927. It then became Rt 6 until the Rt 46 designation in 1946. This was the main thoroughfare before the advent of Interstate Rt 80.
A roadside mountain spring exists at this location. Up until a few years ago, it was the norm to see people lined up to fill their water containers here. I recall them taking water out in jugs by the trunk load. As I remember from a newspaper article quite some time back: An older out of town gent installed a piping system to harness this spring and make it accessible to all. He had maintained this system for years. The water was even routinely tested by the county or state, not sure if they still do. Seems as if it's popularity has now dwindled. The flow is still good but the piping system is showing it's age and in disrepair. No need to enter the woods.
Update: March 2010, piping system is now gone.
Good luck, be safe, have fun, CITO, and cache on.
Don't be bashful to post a DNF. I just might send you some hints for your next visit.
