This was a nice walk in the woods, but not a very strenuous hike. I would describe it as moderate. With the rocks buried under the leaves it was hard to navigate so for those with weak joints, fall may be challenging on this trail.

Really exceptional. Three days of heavy rain in the area and even with muddy and wet conditions, fantastic hike. Rattlesnake Swap portion was very green and lush, fun to see this time of year.

the views were amazing! next time I'll bring my dogs. totally recommend for any hiker

Could not find trail. Google maps led us to a camp site. Very disappointed.

I've done this twice as a part of my Kilimanjaro training. Good trails...views are good. Not as hard as Mt. Tammany on the New Jersey side.

Good hike up hill to the top. Rocky path. Moderately challenging & enjoyable.

Trail was well maintained. It is very rocky with some areas of clear trail. There are numerous locations to rest and take in the views. Before you get to Sunfish there is a stream and a camping area. We went in August. There were a few people on the trail but mostly we were alone walking. Very few bugs.

Great stretch of trail with much variety in the path. Several nice spots where can get good views of the lakes. The view from the Large Pile of Rocks is excellent from both sides of the mountain.

Rocky, rocky rocky! Almost the entire hike we had to navigate the obstacle course of rocks. We were constantly looking down trying not to trip and it caused us to miss an important turn and it really slowed us down. Also made us feel very stupid! Woops! The forest is absolutely gorgeous and there is a nice view at the Sunrise Mountain Overlook but it is an overlook that is easily accessible by driving and parking right next to it so it didn't feel as special. The weather was perfect the day we went so that was a huge plus but it would have been a lot rougher if it hadn't been. It is not a bad hike at all and I enjoyed it for the most part but it's always good to know what you are getting yourself into so I highlighted some of the notable downsides but the forest is truly beautiful and we saw a lot of cool plants and fungi. Camping nearby at the Steam Mill campground was lovely and would like to go back. You can also park on the side of the road right near the trail head which was convenient. We saw a few other hikers along the AT but did not see a single person on the rest of the hike. Also it was a very shady hike. I think that covers it!

Only did a little of it but it was a pretty good trail! Not to much for my dog either. A bunch of the parts were decently narrow if you fallow the white path.

Nice little day hike. Lots of small rocks to make your feet sore so wear sturdy boots. One of the better hikes in the DWG for sure.

Tott’s gap to Lenape Lake- 1 way-4.7 miles—we parked at Tott’s gap road and walked up- there was a gravel area to park before walking up this gravel road

Beautiful hike. Great ankle workout!

It was a beautiful trail and moderate!

Beautiful Hike!!!

Great hike, long but not overwhelming allows you to feel empowered after hiking it. Not many views until you get to sunfish pond at the top. It’s literally alongside of Mt. Tammany. There is also a campsite just before arriving at sunfish pond that you can overnight at.

This was our first time at Delaware Water Gap and parking threw us off a bit! Get there early to avoid waiting for a spot to free up! My dog and I started in Dunnfield Creek and took the AT white trail up. We cut across on the red trail and down back towards the parking lot via green. It’s not marked clearly and somewhat overgrown near where the green and white trail merge. Just cross the creek, hike up the mini cliff (my dog did it) and stay to the left once on top! Near the end is Holly Springs and Dunnfield Creek waterfall, was beautiful! Lots of people though. We will definitely be back to hike Sunfish pond!

This trail was fun, it rained the day before so it was a bit slippery when it came to the mud I suggest wearing boots in that case or have an extra pair of footwear in the car to change into because my sneakers and socks were muddy. There’s not that many views but the little views they did have we enjoyed and ate lunch.
