HIGHLIGHTS: This loop hike begins at the Dunnfield parking area just off I-80 near the Delaware Water Gap NRA visitor’s center. The route follows the Blue Blazed Trail (which shares the first 0.3 miles with the Appalachian Trail) for to the top of Mt. Tammany after 2.5 miles. The Blue Blazed Trail ends at the summit, but you can follow the Red Dot Trail (also known as the Mt. Tammany Trail) back down to the parking area. This hike begins with a pleasant walk along a stream then makes a slow and gradual 1250 foot ascent to Mt. Tammany which has outstanding 180 degree views of the gap and the Delaware River. It can be hiked in either direction but is probably easiest if walked clockwise (which is described here.)
