Went on a misty, foggy day so didn’t get to see a lot of the views described, but this was a consistently nice 4 mile hike. Not a lot of elevation gain and not too rocky, so pretty easy overall. Would love to go back when it’s nicer for sure.

This was a fun trail to hike. However, if you’re looking for the fairy cave, it is not on this trail. Park in the lot to the right of the lake and follow the lake line to get to the cave. There isn’t really a trail for it.

Saw three bears on Thursday October 4th about a mile in. Two scattered and the mother grunted a few times, turned her head and walked off. I slowly backed up, turned around and went back to my car. I carry bear spray whenever I enter the woods and I highly recommend it to everyone else. I didn't have to use it but it was very happy that I had it during this encounter, just in case. I'll be back one day but I wont be hiking on trails with no cars in the parking lot any more.

Beautiful Hike!!!

Something for everyone. Will return soon. Great views

Had a great time

Easy hike. it should not be included in hard hikes.

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.

AllTrails has this hike at 5.8 but when we tracked it using AllTrails we came up with 7. This is a solid moderate to low end difficult and is a great trip thru nature. We came across some deer and lots of salamanders and toads. Our Jack Russell Piper enjoyed toying with the roads immensely. Some of the trail is overgrown but we opted for hiking pants so ticks were not an issue. We did douse ourselves in bug spray and that seemed to be a wise decision. It got crowded at Sunfish Pond but that’s to be expected as it really is quite beautiful.

Great day hike or trail run. Plenty of other trails connecting to make hike more challenging if desired.

i went in from the other side near hope. the trails are hard to follow after you find them the map that you can get is confusing.

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!

Lovely hike! You pass a ton of cascades and sunfish pond is really nice. It felt like we walked on pointy rocks for over a mile, so make sure you wear appropriate shoes for that. And if you take the blue and green trails there, there are multiple creek crossings which were a little tricky. I ended up with 1 wet foot and wish I'd worn different shoes.

Easy and fun, took our dog.

Despite what others have said the trail as marked on this map does not go near the ruins of the ice house. If this is what you came to see look to the map titled White Lake Loop Trail.

Although well maintained and clean this loop is somewhat mediocre. A small parking area is across the road from the trailhead. It begins on an unpaved drive then loops back through the woods.

Not much to see unless you diverge from the map, but access to the historical site is much easier from the parking lot at the lake. Manageable for most skill levels.

I loved this trail! It’s perfect how it ends with sunfish pond before turning around and heading back. I set up camp closer to the MOC since backcountry camping is not permitted in Worthington State Forest but the hike down to the pond and back wasn’t too easy and not too difficult either. The elevations didn’t change too drastically and the views were truly amazing throughout the trail. The employee at the MOC Was extremely helpful and they allow you to park your car in there lot and have you fill out a form so they know to look if you don’t return when you said you would. This helped me feel a bit at ease since I went by myself. Overall a great experience and I will definitely be returning.

Great hike with tons of amazing views! I did come across a bear with her two little cubs but they just walked on through. It’s a rocky trail but the elevation changes aren’t too drastic. I look forward to going back!

Great views for an easy hike, not much elevation gain and its very gradual. Trail is extremely rocky though, which is expected on the AT, so wear sturdy hiking boots. September I believe is the busiest time of the year do to nesting and trail being overcrowded with birdwatchers.

Started at the Douglas trailhead lot which had a decent amount of parking. Headed up the Douglas trail which was a pretty steep climb but the trail was wide and we took it at an easy pace. Connected with the AT and followed that to an area with a very nice overlook of the valley. Continued on the AT until we got to Sunfish Pond where we scoped out a shady spot for some lunch. Found a shedded snakeskin near our lunch spot which was neat. After lunch, got back on the AT and hugged the shoreline of the pond where we saw a few salamanders and a bunch of frogs. At the far end of the pond we came to the Garvey Springs trail which headed back down the mountain. At the junction with the Rockcores trail we went right which seemed to be a less traveled trail and it definitely paid off. As we made our way down we came across a young black bear digging through a rotting tree stump. Upon noticing us, the bear calmly ambled up the mountainside and out of sight. A short distance further and we were back to the parking lot. All in all, a nice 5 mile loop for a late morning / early afternoon hike!

Nice view without a huge elevation gain. Saw my first “wild” bear back at the trailhead near the AT hut.

Great hike! The MOC was also a great spot. Only problem was that we got turned around well before reaching even the merge w Kaiser because we walked right up on a very large bear standing just off the trail while coming around a bend. I was with my two young kids and dog (on leash) so didn’t want to take the chance of waiting it out and continuing on. The bear didn’t seem afraid and just kept doing what it was doing even though we were making plenty of noise. As soon as it turned away from us we slowly backed off and then hiked back down. The kids were psyched because we went and swam in the lake for a while instead. Which was a great way to end the outing. Will be back to do the full route ASAP!

A great hike through varied terrain. Outstanding for this area

The pond is very nice, there is a very large camping area with nice views, lots of fire rings in the camping section though fires are not allowed according to signage, i recommend you stick to the AT around the pond (white blazed) instead of taking the bypass trail so you dont miss the rock art, only down side is it seems to get very busy during the weekend, oh and make sure you stop at Llama ice cream after your hike, youll thank me later!

Good marked trail...did Coppermine-AT-Keiser Trail back to Copper.
steep climbs in spots and rocky..definitely a good hike/workout. Nice stream on the train for water if needed.

Nice views around the lake, otherwise mediocre views. Challenging steep uphill section to begin with for fit persons. Hiked feb 18. Took 3hr20 without stops. iPhone measured at 7 miles (?) would give 3.5 if could.

Great trail for unusual wildlife sighting.

As previously said, not a challenging trail, but it was a great day hike!
Due to the crazy weather, it may have been 12 degrees out but a large portion of the trail was under water.

Views (and silence) made up for it!
