Deleware Water Gap National Recreation Area: Mount Tammany Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"You’ll huff and puff hiking up the steep, rocky trail to Mount Tammany’s summit, but the reward is a spectacular view of the Delaware Water Gap, Mount Minsi, and surrounding farmland. Plan on frequent rest stops on the way up and be sure to carry ample water. During summer months, you might want to watch the water as it cascades through large boulders and fallen trees on its journey to the Delaware River.
Mount Tammany, located within the 70,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, is part of the wooded mountain ridge known as the Kittatinnys—from a Native American word meaning “Big Mountain.” At the top, a perfect spot to admire the Delaware River as it cuts through the mountains, you’ll probably see turkey vultures and broad-winged hawks gliding on the wind currents."
