Great Meadows, New Jersey: Shades of Death Road

Scary hype about seven meandering miles, roughly between the towns of Green and Liberty. "Shades of Death Road" signs have been replaced with tall metal and cement posts to discourage theft.

Map point is at the west end of the road. From US Hwy 46 in Great Meadows, turn north at Saints Peter and Paul Church onto Hope Rd. Drive north 1.5 miles. Shades of Death Rd will branch off to the right; look for the signpost. Follow Shades of Death Rd seven miles to its east end; there's a different style of signpost there.

Great rural roads and farmland in this area make it a very enjoyable ride.

Aside from the name there's nothing so odd about Shades of Death Road. Beautiful scenic farmland is the attraction, but it was disappointing that no one named their property Shady Death Farm or Deathly Acres, but I suppose one could understand.

Yup, this one's more NJ legend-and-lore than roadside attraction....
