There was beautiful wildlife but the trail was directly next to the highway. The overlooks had a view of the highway. There was significant noise pollution as well from the highway.

Great trail with great views up to Mount Minsi. Can be a little more trafficked than I would like.

It’s a hike but there are several great views once you get most of the way up

Nice, pleasant walk with great views of the river and Mt. Tammany. Lookout Rock was a good rest spot.

Easy to follow as it follows the Appalachian trail. The view from lookout rock felt like a nice destination. Glad I wore boots as it was rocky at points and had a stream crossing.

Nice out and back with my wife carrying our six week old on the front and our two and a half year old hiking out and then in my backpack on the way in. Nice little views. Did not go all the way to the lookout. Great beginner trail for a toddler.

Such a fun hike! Perfect mix of some elevation, private feeling but not desolate, tricky but safe footing on a clearly marked trail. Had some great views of the gap and surrounding area. Definitely will come back for more!

Awesome trail, first two miles (From the Water gap to Fox Gap) its all up, nice stream crossing, great couple of view points, after that you go on about 1.5 easy stroll on a back road, then back to easy woods( bit Rocky ) part of trail. I didnt make it to Fox Gap as I was tired and it was late at night, instead set camp in a opening with a great view about four miles in.

Did a variation and came down Tots Gap Road.
