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.
Great view of Arrow Island, the Delaware River and Mt. Minsi! I hiked the Tammany trail to blue dot, down to green. Went up green for a while to view Dunnfield Creek and then back tracked and followed green to white back to the parking lot. It was a chilly day but absolutely beautiful otherwise. Blue skies, white clouds and just enough snow to make the trails beautiful but not dangerous. I love this hike and will do it again!
