For 40 miles the Middle Delaware River passes between low forested mountains with barely a house in sight. Then the river cuts through the mountain ridge to form the famed "Water Gap." Exiting the park, the river will run 200 miles more to Delaware Bay at Wilmington, Delaware, and then to the Atlantic Ocean.
I've been here 3 times the first time alone and I've since taken both my brothers here. In my opinion easily one of the best hikes in new Jersey. The veiw from the top is nice a rock face that jets downward allowing you walk down and hang you feet off the edge and sit back. I find the veiw from the first overlook to be even prettier though . Pretty easy loop trail going up is a bit steeper and the way down is more gradual, as far as new Jersey goes it's tough to beat this hike .
It's a great trail and challenging at times. The view is well worth it in the end. My only complaint is parking is a mess. Parking is shared with the Delaware water gap recreation center, so if you're hiking this trail get there as early as possible. We went in August and all parking was taken. Trail gets crowded during peak months as well. I honestly preferred Mount Minsi over this one.
