Tranquility and Excitement Canoe through rapids and quiet pools as the Delaware River winds its way through a valley of swiftly changing scenery or fish amid rolling hills and riverfront villages in one of the finest fishing rivers in the northeastern United States. The clean water of the Delaware, the last major undammed river in the eastern United States, supports a healthy ecosystem and offers tranquility and excitement.

The trail is difficult, but has a nice view from the top and places to sit and enjoy the scenery. There's a lot to see on the way up (or down, depending on which route you take); If you take the left at the trail head, it's a brutal climb up but the way back down is more gradual.

There is plenty of parking at the stone arch bridge at the bottom of the mountain, or you can drive across the bridge and up the mountain and park at the trail head and cut about a mile off uphill walking off.

A nice, easy to moderate hike (some inclines, but on maintained trails) at the site of the only Revolutionary War battle fought in the Upper Delaware River Valley.

Fairly easy to moderate hike. Beaver dams along the way and an OLD early 19th century cemetery at the end of the trail.

Part of the NPS Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.

Good time..

Did a three night 40+ mile trip from Calicoon to Mongaup Falls in a kayak. Great rapids in the spring. Check out the riverside campgrounds along the way. And take some shad darts if you go for the spring run.
