Mount Tammany

Mount Tammany, Delaware Water Gap (10/25/2010)

This is the Hike of the Week for 7/29/2005 as described on the NY-NJ Trail Conference website. We took a day off from work to enjoy the last of the fall foliage, hitting the road at 7:15 AM and getting to the trail head at 8:15. We hiked up this beautiful mountain on New Years Day, 2005, and on that day we followed a clockwise direction, climbing on the more-gradual Blue trail. Today we climbed straight up via the Red trail, reaching the awesome viewpoint before 9:30 AM when the morning mist added a ethereal quality to the amazing views, and the fall foliage on Mount Minsi, in direct sunlight across the Delaware was gorgeous.

Total distance traveled was 4 miles in approximately 3 hours.
