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.

Loved this trail. I thought it was easy. Had a stairway down to the waterfall. There were about 10 feet that had a kind of scary dropoff, for me anyway, probably not for most people. It was really pretty and peaceful. We went on a weekday.

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

Lots of rocks and very steep on the way up. We went during hunting season so dressed our teenage girls in orange (which they “loved”) They complained some because-teenage girls, but they raved about it and loved their instagrammable pictures afterwards. Loved getting these screenagers somewhat off the grid. Mostly rocks even on the back side (blue dot). Finally got to some smooth trails near dunnfield creek which felt like butter on the feet after all the rocks. Go early though as the lot fills up fast. We got a spot no problem but on the way out the ranger had the lot coned off.

It's a light to moderate hike. Views (about a quarter way up which take about half an hour) are wonderful and relatively accessible to the average fit person. The entire hike to the top took about 2 hours.

First 2 miles is all uphill! Keep going to get the view. Super quiet on the weekdays.

One of my favorite places to hike. The view is outstanding. To go as far as Raccoon Ridge, it's an out and back trail, But you can make it a loop by connecting the Keiser and the Copper mine Trail. Love all the trails near the Mohican Outdoor Center.
