Nice walk on Labor Day. Fox Gap to Mt Minsi about 10 miles round trip. A few through hikers still coming down from Maine. Generally a quiet walk, with a couple of overnight camp spots used by other than through hikers. Definitely a good dog walk, if your dog can do the distance.

the hike is 7miles one direction. if you are doing out and back the mileage is correct. we hiked from Delaware water gap to fox gap. The first 2 miles were straight up hill. killer on your legs but after that easier though much of the hike is up hill from water gap to fox gap. the elevatiom map was very helpful and accurate. just remember the map is out and back so water gap is in the middle of the elevation map. the views from the look outs were breath taking!!

Hike is actually 7.5 miles not 13 miles. Did the psych with a buddy that was very nice. The decent into Delaware water gap will definitely work out your legs.

This is a great walk along mostly fire road through Totts Gap. After peak of Mt Minsi you descend to a relatively crowded Delaware Water Gap - a very good day hike

One of my first hikes. The trail was pretty steep and very rocky. But the view was amazing. We ended up setting camp at a spot where hang gliders use to launch which I found interesting. Didn't encounter any bears but others nearby said they did. Definitely worth a look see. Definitely would go back.
