Mt. Minsi via the AT, Delaware Water Gap NRA, PA

Kathleen Sandt
Bushkill, PA


Ascend a 1,463-foot promontory along the New Jersey-Pennsylvania border on this 4.2-mile out-and-back on the AT. Pass Lake Lenape at mile .3, where bullfrogs croak at dawn and dusk. Climb 1,000 feet through a budding mixed hardwood forest to summit Mt. Minsi, where a 180-degree view extends across the snaking river to 1,527-foot Mt. Tammany (NJ). Retrace your steps, or return via the fire road for a 5-mile loop. Trip data
