To DO Map

Hiked this last week, up red dot and down blue dot. Very icy at points, needed our crampons at those spots. Cold but clear, few people on trail, absolutely beautiful!

Yes, definitely a up hill work out for the first 2 miles or so, but the views are definitely worth it. A little icy towards the top, and a few downed trees that need to be removed from trail.

We nailed it and went during the worst weather ever! but this trail is sheltered somewhat and the rain/fog didn't effect us much! Made the colors pop in our pictures too :) Eat at the Rickett's Glenn Hotel...YUMMO! Get the potato thing - it was delicious!

We are visiting from Missouri staying here for the week. This was the first trail we did. It was a beautiful morning hike up the Appalachian Trail through the snow. Loved it! Great views, forest and rock outcroppings are amazing, air clear and crisp! Came back down the fire road.

Great trail. I’ve done it three times since March has started. If you want more of a challenge take the trail counter clockwise starting with the blue dot trail and taking the red dot down. Much steeper inclines going up so it’s a nicer workout plus you get to see all the falls first and the hike down is much quicker after you summit

This is a great hike along the Appalachian Trail. Incredible views and a great workout. Check out my full write up that includes directions and things to look out for.

Favorite NJ hike. Red dot has some rock scrambling towards the top and blue dot is very rocky to descend. Would recommend hiking boots not sneakers. Really fun hike

Rocky, steep in sections, but the view is worth the climb!

it's a nice hike, first 2 miles give you good work out, great views.

very wet this time of year be prepared to walk in 4-6 inches of water for a few miles . Feb 26. views do not disappoint. beautiful little series of falls at the bottom.

In Aug 2016, we camped here with our family of ten and hiked over 15 mi in this park. The waterfall trail is amazing. Steep. Slippery. And gorgeous.

Beautiful hike after an overnight 6 inch snowfall. Great views, tranquil Eureka creek crossing, and beautiful rhododendrons. Moderate hike which took about 3 hours with multiple stops to admire views and take pictures. We took the fire road back due to slippery snow covered rocks.

Great hike

First one of my "big" hikes, back in August. Great loop but rocky way down, amazing views, fun swimming hole. Still of of my favorite hikes

Went on a warm day in January ! It was BEAUTIFUL , some patches of ice . Red dot up and blue dot down . Absolutely breathtaking !!!

Great view at Hemlock Lake. But signs are not clear since then. We followed the false trail when we wanted to leave the lake and came back to the falls.

This is easy training hike for me. I am from car and back under 1 hour. Nice mixed terrain.

Climbed Mt. Minsi yesterday. Great hike with what others have already described as... "...great views of the Delaware River and Mount Tammany!". It'll take around 3 hrs start to finish is definitely icy in spots this time of year.. Easy trail "overall".. Two thumbs up!

It’s my favorite hike the area. It’s short, great view at the top, and waterfalls on the Dunnfield creek at the bottom. But y’all. Stop leaving trash. Orange peels, apple cores and banana peels are all still trash. Would those items be there if we weren’t? Anything you bring into the woods should come back out.

Challenging but overall a short hike. I combined this with the Sunfish Pond loop and it made for an 11 mile (+/-) hike. I chose to follow the Dunnfield Creek path on the way to Sunfish. Didn’t see a single person. This trail was definitely more adventurous with numerous stream crossings, some washed-out sections of trail, and large spots of ice. After Sunfish Pond I stayed on the AT and passed dozens of people gojng the other direction. The AT was a far easier walk back to the car. Looking forward to doing this again in he spring.

Gorgeous views and a great moderate hike.

First thing I’ll say is red dot to blue dot blazes is the way to make this hike. Experienced hikers with proper footwear could go up red dot and back down red dot, but much more rewarding to take blue down. Easier on the knees and a different style hike. I made the hike in icy and snowy conditions so would recommend the trail any time of year. A little less than 2 hours if you’re moving, but take your time as you will have multiple views of the gap along your way. Red dot trail is to your right as soon as you enter the parking area. If you find yourself crossing a bridge and seeing white blazes immediately, you are heading toward the blue dot trail (this is the way you will exit the woods back to the parking lot).

Nice hike along the AT with good views of Mt. Tammany and the Del River Gap. I would make this an out and back, coming back on the AT instead of the Fire road.

A short yet somewhat difficult hike. This hike has the challenge of steep uphill portions with the reward of a beautiful outlook at the peak. The way down is very pleasant as you see new scenery which includes a winding path through the trees and running water. There is even a small pond that you can cliff-jump in to. The first time I hiked this trail I even saw a young bear! (Check it out in the gallery). This hike was a great experience all around. Those planning to come here should allow themselves ample time to take breaks and appreciate their surroundings.

First time hiking this trail. Overall great hike. Not a lot of foot traffic and a nice hike. It’s a little icy out there at this time of year, so be sure to wear proper footwear.

nice scenery on the red trail. overall nice hike

Beautiful woods and views of the gap. Good moderate afternoon hike.

Amazing hike, not easy but I did it with my toddler on my back so maybe alone is a little easier!!!! love the view!!!

Great cardio hike with varied terrain. 35-45 min up red to the top and 40-45 min down blue.
