Great day hike with pretty cool views of the delegate water gap!

I had little bit of time during my business trip, and I’m glad I got my early morning exercise and relaxation done . Nice view where red and blue dot meets.

When you get to the top of the clearing of the first ascent the trail marker to the right was obscured by a lot of brush, but after a descent amount of time eventually found the trail markers and continued our hike. Overall I recommend this trail!!!

Great day hike. A handful of scrambles but nothing daunting. Terrific views from the summit of southern and western NJ and Penn. Best to arrive early, especially on the weekend. Parking at the trail head proved to be the biggest challenge.

Great path for walking or running - flat

One of my favorite hiking areas. Today we did our yearly Sunrise hike - started at 5:45 am up the Blue dot trail using headlamps. Walking alongside Dunfield creek we could hear the water rushing down the ravine. Shining a light on the water showed nothing but glowing white water below us. The trail was wet and we entered a fog before the top - our gear was soaked - and ice was dropping from the trees. We hit the top around 7 and had breakfast hoping the clouds would break - no such luck. Around 7:40 we headed down the Red trail. It was still cloudy, but it was bright enough to get to the bottom without headlamps. Back to the cars around 9:00 and headed home.

Me and my 9 year old son went up the red trail and down the blue trail. It was much harder than anticipated but we plan on returning to repeat the challenge! Unfortunately the day we went it was raining and the view at the top was covered in fog but it was still a great adventure!

Did this loop on 12/27/18. I hiked the Red trail first in order to get the toughest part of the hike behind me. The view from the top is impressive, especially on a clear day!

Amazing trail and well marked only down side is the price.

Excellent trail. Well marked. Fairly rocky but no climbing. Strenuous but not too much. Beautiful forest setting. The pond was beautiful at the top. Can’t wait to come again and go around the pond and the creek route on the way down.

Great hike. I think the HARD rating is deserved. Some rather rocky sections especially the north shore of Sunfish Pond. We had a great day weather wise. Upper 30's, no wind. Overcast but that made it nice considering it is winter. The description says 9.1 miles but it ended up being slightly over 10 and we did not vary from the trail outlined. Not sure why the descrepency. Overall my favorite NJ hike so far. Be aware of the 5 creek crossings on the way down. Our feet were soaked for the last 2 miles. Got in the car and cranked the heat and all good. Super fun hike.

great Trail I will come here again and again and again there are so many different trails to go on especially when you get up in the higher elevations very Rocky you need to be in pretty good shape to do this

I hiked this trail last Spring and Fall of 2017. It was challenging but not too bad. Views throughout the hike are great including a nice waterfall at the bottom. I would definitely go back. It is a nice way to get friends or family into hiking. I saw people of all age levels out there. Trekking poles are highly recommended. Not too crowded on weekdays.

Nice trail, pretty easy, not very rugged as most inclines are basically deck steps, great for people to see the waterfalls and spend some time in the woods, for the serious hiker tho it’s probably not a must do spot, but all in all it’s a nice trail and great scenery

I’ve done this trail several times and it never gets old. The views are beautiful.

It’s a hard rocky steep trail and my daughter (an experienced hiker who turns 6 in a month) completed it with me like a trooper. Fantastic day! It’s heavily marked so you never panic, red dots going up and blue dots going down. Amazing views on the way up of the mountains and landscapes, the trees are bare right now so the views opened up. Once you get down gorgeous waterfalls all along the trail. Will do this again!

Always a good challenge. We went in mid-November. Good idea to bring gloves for balancing your weight on rocks as you climb up the red trail. My hiking boots were great in the melted snow/slush and rocky terrain. Depending on the weather trail runner/sneakers might work but definitely not regular sneakers and don't even think about flip flops.

Nice trail, pretty well marked and very rocky in spots. There were no really tough rock scrambles, and my 60 lb dog had no problems scaling the rocks. We met some friendly fellow hikers at the top and chatted a while, while enjoying some nice views of Mt Minsi and the Delaware River. The blue trail down was easier and an overall nice hike through the forest. There is a pretty creek and small waterfall at the bottom. For a shorter hike, this trail provided a very good workout. Hiking shoes are strongly recommended!

Excellent hike and in NJ probably one of the few with a reasonable amount of elevation.

We ended up doing a 15 mile loop after climbing through heavy rocks in the middle C trail.

This has a lot of rocks and boulders as well as streams so hiking boots are strongly recommended.

We did it Dec 1 and due to mistiming our total hike ended up doing the last hour in complete dark and moderate rain - not recommended!! So if you do it in December plan your return early as daylight goes away by 430 pair so.

Lots of photogenic scenery.

Only put off is the gas pipeline running through certain parts!!

Will definitely go again in summer- probably easier at that time. This time was slippery, mushy and wet!!

Very nice. Love it

did this counter clockwise , did this trail after minsi for mind the gap. I did prefer this trail only because it had more incline

The trail’s start was a great initial ascent and really got the blood pumping. Upon reaching the clearing at the top, the trail marker to the right was completely obscured by brush and took me a few minutes to pull out my trail map and use the GPS to get myself on track. Other than that, was a beautiful hike. As I came in mid-November, there was little wildlife to be seen, and I encountered no other hikers all morning, so was a very serene and quiet hike. I would come again!

we took the AT to Sunfish Pond and then took the green trail down to the parking lot. There were five creek crossings on the green path that were tricky with our two dogs. The walk up to Sunfish Pond was easy and our dogs did that without any problems. If there hadn't been so much rain recently, the walk down would've been easier.

Went up the Red Dot trail and down the Blue. I have asthma and a chronic cough and am definitely out of shape and haven't hiked in years so the ascent was extremely challenging for me. There are a couple of very difficult spots that are all rock and steep. I almost gave up but I knew the payoff would be so sweet if I made it to the top. I had to stop many times. My poor partner who is very much more fit than I was patient, however, and we made it. I am so glad I stuck with it. The top was amazing and thrilling and beautiful. You can do this! If I can do this, anyone can. Coming down was much much much easier except my toes were jamming into the front of my boots. Beautiful waterfall and stream at the bottom. I felt so accomplished and alive and the end. You must do this!

Good for a ppl who do not hike and who would pay $16.5 for an adult ticket to see something that can be seen for free at different location. I believe last weekend there were over 100 cars parked plus 2 “ coach America” size busses. Over priced and crowded. We turned back , drove 2 miles down the road and hiked for free, lol

3 stars since bathroom was clean

Like most people, went up Red Dot, down Blue Dot which was perfect. Both are rocky trails and Red was a bit of a challenge for fairly casual hikers like us, but we loved the view at the top. It had rained a lot the day before so much of the trail was muddy and leaf-covered which made some spots slippery, so be sure to wear proper shoes.

Also this was probably the most clearly marked trail I’ve ever been on - red dots everywhere!

Took red dot up which is strenuous. I got there at 0800 and it was quiet. Trail is rocky and mostly up hill. Blue dot coming down is still rocky and that leads to a short part of Dunn field Creek trail which had a water fall and stream. Nice views all along. Had my dog also.

We went up the blue dot trail and down the red dot trail. Red dot is much harder, and it has the best views.
