Sand Hills is an unincorporated community located within South Brunswick Township in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States.[2] The settlement is named for Sand Hills, a small group of diabase hills which contains Middlesex County's highest point.[3] The settlement is located approximately at the intersection of U.S. Route 1 (US 1), Sand Hills Road, and Major Road. There is a small cluster of houses and small businesses on Major Road just south of US 1 while more housing developments are found on the north side of the highway. Fast food restaurants, stores, and repair shops line US 1 through the area; this area of US 1 also has large inclines on both sides of the hills to climb from the relatively low and flat areas of the Atlantic coastal plain.[4]
