Overview

This is a loop hike to Mt. Tammany Lookout in Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.
The red dot trail is not an EASY hike, its short in length but has 1200ft of elevation.

Taking Children

This hike is appropriate for children, however, children under 5 years of age may find it too strenuous for their liking. Proper footwear is a must! This hike is directly off of Route 80, but the proximity to the highway does not mean easy. There are steep drop offs, please keep dogs leashed.

    Really difficult. Clambering up the rocks, the elevation climb, and then realizing you can't turn around and go back to the trail head (because you brought your dogs). But I always appreciate the tougher hikes. The hate/love relationship. The view is breathtaking. The gnat swarms were annoying. It was all worth it for the view. Will not do again with dogs. They enjoyed it (2 80lb boxer dogs) but I was worried about their paws the whole time. Bring plenty of water for them and sports drinks for yourself. You will need it. Enjoy the blue dot trail on the way down and go wash the salt off your face in the falls off the Dunnfield creek trail back to the parking lot. This trail is well marked. Pay attention to the red dots and the arrows. They will be on the trees and the rocks. Just follow the dots and don't give up. ;)

    One of the nicer and more challenging hikes in the Delaware Water Gap. Great view from the top too. If possible hike this during the week. It’s a popular hike and can get very crowded on the weekends.
