I have ridden this road many times and it is a very nice route. However, the traffic on 209 from Stroudsburg to Bushkill is a nightmare during the summer; many stops and generally heavy traffic.

Also be aware that the federal lands along the river are heavily patrolled by National Park Service rangers. They practice giving out tickets on a grand scale. I was pinched for not slowing down through a construction zone on labor day weekend. No construction vehicles in sight but they had three cars writing tickets non-stop.

The NJ side of the river doesn't have as much a view of the river as the PA side, but it's a very nice ride through rural NJ with very little traffic. I thought the road surface was a little better on the NJ side.
