Aside from having more people on the trail than we like, this was a fun day hike. Steeper and more fun than Mt. Tammany.

Beautiful hike, not as difficult as I had imagined. Lookout 1 and 2 have some beautiful views of Mt. Tammany. There is also a great waterfall to check out on the way down towards the end of the hike.

Much preferred this to mount Tammany. Less crowded, more challenging. Views from the top are good not great. Fun.

Tott’s gap to Delaware water gap at the bridge to cross over to NJ. 4.7 miles- beginning was rocky but then it became more flat in the clearing towards minski- beautiful views- we did not venture off the AT although I know there are many trails around. Not too many bugs, no snakes, some unusual sounding birds though. Perfect hiking day- low humidity & 60-65.

Nice moderate trail, parking is limited, the trail is along highways and parts of it could be rocky and there is three points with good views. Saw a couple of snakes on the trail, and moderate amount of mosquitoes.

rocky, pretty much ends just past radio tower with real nice overlook to left unless u want to continue on Appalachian trail.

Nice leisurely trail. Take the Appalachian Trail (white markers) up and back for optimal views and terrain.

Amazing hike!! Beautiful views and well worth it. From start when you get on the trail start in your left you will get a little of everything, flat , rocky , hill thru the woods and then you reach a steep view of the water gap. Make sure you wear hiking shoes as it’s very rocky terrain. I would definitely go back and do this trail again!!!

Nice trail for some nice views not a hard trail went up the AT and came back down the all trails route
