Deleware Water Gap National Recreation Area: Dunnfield Creek Circular Trail Professional Review and Guide
"More than 2.5 million people are drawn to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area each year. Most go directly to the Kittatinny Point Visitor Center, where they can enjoy a leisurely picnic or views of the scenic Delaware River. Hikers, however, come for the peace of the surrounding woodland trails on the Kittatinny Ridge—best hiked on a weekday—and the sight of a huge boulder dating back 450 million years. If you’re planning to camp, there is no fee, but check in at the visitor center first.
Backcountry camping is permitted only along the Appalachian Trail and only for hikers on extended trips of two or more days. Spring ushers in new ferns; during summer the fragrance of honeysuckle fills the air and rhododendron put on a magnificent display; in fall the leaves turn, casting a bright glow against a backdrop of tall, green hemlocks; and in winter a sheet of ice covers the stream’s pools, while a blanket of snow decorates the rocks."
