                                           -- 14 miles --

    Join us Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 8:45 AM (sharp!) for a hike exploring the beautiful Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area in Worthington State Forest!

    Be prepared to warm-up with a challenging 1.5 mile climb up the steep, rocky Mt Tammany for a breathtaking view of the Gap. We will then complete a circuit with multiple stream crossings, challenging elevations, a visit to the rock sculptures along Sunfish Pond and an opportunity to take a refreshing dip in Dunnfield Falls.

    • Distance: 14 miles
    • Pace:[masked] mph
    • Duration: 7-8 hours


    IMPORTANT NOTES:
    • Remember to hydrate before the hike and bring plenty of water!
    • Keep your eyes (and ears) out for rattlesnakes and copperheads common to this area.
    Dogs welcome! Please note in comments if you are planning to bring your pooch!
    • While this is anticipated to be a fast-paced hike, expect frequent stops to enjoy the trail & allow the group to regather. Thank you for being mindful of group unity.
    • With any luck, blueberries will be at peak, so remember a bag to collect them along the way!
    • Please plan to join us for dinner at the Sycamore Grille after the hike! We may even have time for dessert at Zoe's Ice Cream Emporium open 'til 9:00 PM just down the street at the Castle Inn!
