Appalachian Mountain Club’s Mohican Outdoor Center—Catfish Pond Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Abundant wildlife around a remote and scenic lake in the rugged Kittatinny Mountains along the Appalachian Trail is yours to enjoy for the day. Looking like a long-sleeved mitt, Catfish Pond sits atop the Kittatinny Mountain ridge within the 15,000-acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Mohican Outdoor Center. Camping, hiking, boating, and boat rentals, as well as lodging, are offered at the center in this rugged and pristine environment. Across from the launch, the mountains rise 120 to 150 feet above the lake, and quite sharply at the eastern end. Rock faces and cliffs peek here and there between the trees, adding texture to the landscape. The forest is primarily hardwoods, with conifers along the lakeshore and in small pockets on the mountain. At the northeast end of the lake, where the mountains rise quite steeply, coniferous trees are more prevalent."
